Prep Time:
Cook Time:

I just love the flavor of these cookies and they are so easy to make using a cookie press.

Every once in awhile before I bake these cookies I will sprinkle cookie candies on the top. The chocolate ones are a really good compliment with the orange flavor.


1 c
butter or margarine
3 oz. pkg
cream cheese
1 c
1 Tbsp
grated orange peel
2 Tbsp
orange juice
2 1/2 c
sifted all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking powder
dash of salt

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine the butter and cream cheese and beat until creamy , gradually add the sugar , beating until the mixture is fluffy. Beat in the egg , orange peel and juice until thoroughly creamed together.
Sift together the dry ingredients and mix with the creamed mixture until all blended together.
Put the plate with the narrow slit ( ribbon one ) on your cookie press and fill the press with 1/4 th of the dough at a time. Press rows with strips of dough on an un-greased cookie sheet ; keeping each row 1" apart from each other.
Take a knife and make crease marks in the strips in 2" lengths.
Bake @ 375° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned , remove from the oven and Immediately cut the strips into sections at the crease marks. Remove cookies to a wire rack and let cool.

Deb, I've been "lost" on all the other groups I've recently joined and just viewed your idea! Both ideas are great and I LOVE garage sales (we have lots of them where I live).

Tana , I have always pressed these cookies but you could always roll them into small balls and then flatten them with the bottom of a glass.

I have 2 of them and I got mine at a second hand store. :-)

Tana, you can always use a ziplock bag. Cut a small hole in one corner and Tada! You can then squeeze out the dough just like a cookie press. If you like garage sales, I bet you could find a cookie press. :) They are fun and you get even pretty cookies.
