Orange Cookies .... The recipe

 So many of you asked for the Orange Cookie recipe.... 

I will oblige 

Its a top secret recipe tho

If you make them - you must send tasting samples...

Here you go:

Combine in a mixing bowl ( as in cream them - this is an old recipe card)

  •  1 1/2 Cups white sugar
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shortening ( I use butter)
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 cups flour ( I used one for one Gluten free flour)
  • 2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Juice and rind of Two oranges  ( so! I used orange juice - and used 2/3 of a cup)
Bake at 350 on lightly sprayed backing sheets for 10-15 minutes. 
Frost when still warm ( but not too warm or the frosting gets clear)

Use the juice and rind from 1 orange and about 1 box of powdered sugar 

*I use all gluten free ingredients
*I bake them on cookies sheets lined with parchment pater and a light spray of pam
*after 2 minutes of cooling on the cookie sheet I take them off to the counter
* after 5 minutes of cooling I put the frosting on

None of that is scientific = but - Gluten free flours can either be too soft or too dry - so this method makes them cookie like - and everyone eats them before I can get them in the freezer.... ( when they are home!)
