ORANGE DELIGHT COOKIES

Preheat oven to 400°

Cookies:

Sift together and set aside:

2 cups flour

½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

Cream together until light and fluffy:

2/3 cup unsalted butter

¾ cup sugar

Add and mix until well combined:

1 egg

2 T. orange zest

Add flour mixture to butter mixture adding alternately 3 times with

½ cup fresh squeezed orange juice

Drop by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet at least 1 ½ inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes. Remove and cool on wire racks at least 30 minutes before frosting.

Orange Frosting:

Cream together until light and fluffy:

2 ½ T. unsalted butter

1 ½ cups confectioners’ sugar

Add and mix until smooth:

2 T. orange zest

1 ½ – 2 T. orange juice (may need a bit more to get desired consistency)

Spread on cooled cookies.

Makes about 30 cookies.

(My tip would be to always be generous with zest. Don’t skimp.)
