Karla's StoryI 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.
butter or margarine
3 oz. pkg
grated orange peel
2 1/2 c
sifted all purpose flour
dash of salt
1Combine 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.
2Sift together the dry ingredients and mix with the creamed mixture until all blended together.
3Put 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.
4Take a knife and make crease marks in the strips in 2" lengths.
5Bake @ 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.
