Ruby Red Grapefruit Cookies

Get ready to fill your cookie jars with some flavorful Ruby Red Grapefruit cookies! Let’s have some fun this National Cookie Day! ????


  • 2-3 Tablespoons of Indian River Select Ruby Red Grapefruit juice
  • 1 batch of homemade or store-bought sugar cookie dough
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Zest of one grapefruit
  • 1 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • Red food coloring (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Using a food processor or blender, mix the zest and granulated sugar together until well-combined.
  3. Roll your cookie dough into 1-inch balls. Dip the bottom half of them into the zest/sugar mixture.
  4. Arrange them on the cookie sheet, sugar-side down, spaced 3 inches apart. Dip a drinking glass in some flour and press the cookie balls flat until they are about 1/4 inch thick discs.
  5. Bake for 8-12 minutes (or use the suggested time on your cookie recipe), until they are just slightly brown on the edges. Then let it cool.
  6. While they cool, whisk together the powdered sugar and 2 Tablespoons of Indian River Select Ruby Red Grapefruit juice. If it’s too thick to drizzle, add the last Tablespoon, bit by bit. Whisk in one drop of food coloring, if desired.
  7. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cookies and let set briefly before serving. Enjoy!
