These orange drop cookies were the highlight of the treat table at the Foxy Mama Baby Shower… So I did what any normal person would do and begged my co-hostess, Angie, if I could have her recipe to share on here. It’d be unfair not to.
2/3 c. shortening
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. freshly squeezed orange juice
2 T. grated orange rind
2 1/3 c. flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
DIRECTIONS- Mix the shortening, sugar, and egg. Mix in the orange juice and rind. In a separate bowl, mix the remaining (dry) ingredients and then gradually add to the rest of the batter. Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet.
2 1/2 T. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 T. freshly squeezed orange juice
2 T. orange rind
DIRECTIONS- Whisk ingredients together and spread/drizzle on (cooled off) cookies.
