Orange cookies

These cookies are essentially butter cookies with an orange twist. They are quite delicious indeed. The orange makes the cookies taste a little lighter than regular butter cookies.

This recipe makes about 18 cookies 1/4 inch cookies. The dough freezes well. I usually slice the cookies and then freeze the slices. When we need some cookies, I just bake a few up. Unfortunately this time, I do not have a picture as my family finished the batch I baked up before I got around to taking one.


1/2 cup of butter, softened

1/4 cup sugar

1 tbspn freshly squeezed orange juice

1 tsp vanilla essence

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp grated orange peel

1 cup all purpose flour

2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.

3. Roll dough into a log. Slice cookies into 1/4 inch slices.

4. Bake at 35o F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown.

5. Cool and enjoy.
