How to Make Tangy Orange Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt, set aside. Cream butter, shortening and sugar in mixing bowl, add egg and beat well. Blend in dry ingredients gradually. Mix thoroughly, add orange juice concentrate and coconut, mix well. Drop by teaspoonful onto cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 12-13 minutes. Frost while warm.
  2. Frosting...Mix together orange juice, water and powdered sugar and blend well. Drizzle over cookies while still warm.
  3. *I think these would be good with slivered almonds added.
    *I also think they would be good with 1 tsp of almond flavoring then too.
    *If you'd rather have just a hint of orange, use orange juice instead of the orange juice concentrate.
