Colleen's Story

These are tasty little cookies... made with a dough that is easy to handle.

The topping possibilities are endless....

If you choose to dip them in chocolate... try dipping half a cookie, making a stripe on top and add sprinkles, make drizzles..

Or just roll them in powdered sugar.....

This is dedicated to my friend JoAnne.....


3 c
all purpose flour
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
1 c
butter or margarine (softened)

1 c
zest or oranges
5 Tbsp
orange juice, fresh
chopped nuts, flaked coconut, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, colored sugar, candy sprinkles
melted chocolate for coating...

Directions Step-By-Step

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg, orange peel and juice; beat well.

Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Cover and chill for 1 hour or longer.

3-ways to shape the cookies:

Roll to a 1/8-inch thickness and cut with lightly floured cookie cutters.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls, or 3" x 1/2" logs.

Roll or sprinkle cookies with chopped nuts, coconut, etc.

Place on ungreased or parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove and cool on wire racks.
Optional: Melt the chocolate and dip cookies if desired.

    I just got a Microplane grater and I'm dying to try it on something. This recipe with the zest of 2 oranges is perfect. And I know the cookies will be good. Thanks for sharing, Colleen.

    Hey Jo, Elsie and Wendy.... I am glad you like this one... it is good... (sometimes when I am out of oranges... I use frozen concentrated orange juice - while still concentrated).
