Orange Cookie Recipe
I posted a few pictures of these Orange Cookies on my previous post. I've finally returned with the recipe.
This recipe comes from Minnesota, and they were lovingly baked by one of my dear aunts for years and years. We always requested 'orange cookies' when we visited her home. She is no longer able to bake, but the rest of us in the family enjoy baking these cookies again and again.
Enjoy! These cookies are so delicious.
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup margerine or butter
(you may use 1/2 cup shortening with 1/2 cup butter or margerine if desired)
1Tbsp orange rind
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup buttermilk (add after eggs)
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Cream the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, orange rind, and then add the buttermilk.
Add the dry ingredients, mix well. Drop by tablespoons onto ungreased cookies sheets. (They get a lot larger, so don't make them too large or they'll be huge.)
After they are cool, ice them with this icing:
1 Tbsp orange rind
3 Tbsp butter, softened
3 Tbsp orange juice
3 cups powdered sugar
Makes about 40-45 cookies.
Thanks for stopping by here today.
