These are from the 1957 Betty Crocker's Cooky Carnival recipe booklet. You could order it by mail when you purchased Gold Medal Flour. Their is not ONE bad recipe in this whole little booklet. This was a favorite growing up and is very versatile depending on what flavoring you might want to add. The cookies are very soft and moist, and you may frost them if you choose. I have included frosting recipe.

11****Lillian***** You can add more orange zest and either orange extract or juice to the frosting. But if you use fresh juice make sure and add it before the milk so you will know how much milk you need to add. If the frosting gets to thin, just add some more powdered sugar. Hope you enjoy this, it is sooo good. You could also do this with lemon or lime the same way.
