I'm pretty sure you could use whatever citrus you prefer with this recipe and you'll end up with a crowd-pleaser. The flavor is so lovely that I eat them without syrup and I'm that friend that usually keeps pouring that stuff on until people are staring so...

Ingredients are listed in the order they appear in the recipe and anything that requires prep is in bold. Ingredients are bolded in the directions when you first encounter them as well as when they are reintroduced after being set aside. All ingredients are Capitalized.

Zester or Grater



In a bowl, whisk together 1-½ cups All-Purpose Flour, 3 Tbs Sugar, 1-½ tsp Baking Powder, ½ tsp Baking Soda and ¼ tsp Salt.
