The original recipe comes from a Better Homes and Gardens cookie catalog, however, it is only for the cookie base.

These are actually a lot easier than they seem but totally worth the wait!

Any kind of jam or jelly is delicious with this recipe if you aren't thrilled with oranges, but the favorite around here orange.

How to Make Orange Blossoms

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer for about 30 seconds. Add sugar and vanilla and beat until well mixed.

    Beat in as much flour as you can with the electric mixer, then stir in the rest with a wooden spoon.

    Cover and chill approx 1 hour, it will be easy to handle.
  • 2Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a mini-cupcake pan.

    Shape dough into approx 1 inch balls and drop into the cupcake pan slots.

    Using your index finger or the back of a small spoon, make an indentation in the center of the cookie dough so that it comes up even to the top of the muffin cup.

    Make sure not to push the indentation too far down, so there is enough dough all around the cup.

    Spoon approx 3/4 to 1 teaspoon of orange marmalade into each indentation, so it is even with top of the muffin cup.
  • 3Bake approx 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookie are turning golden brown.

    Let cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before carefully removing with a knife. They should come right out.

    Cool before serving, the marmalade will stay fairly hot after the cookie crust has cooled.

    Makes about 2 1/2 - 3 dozen blossoms.
