DIRECTIONS

  • In small bowl, sift together dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, soda; set aside.
  • Grate oranges to remove rind.
  • After grating, squeeze juice; set aside.
  • Cream together butter and sugar.
  • Blend in orange rind and fresh orange juice.
  • Add dry ingredients slowly and mix well.
  • wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour (I usually chill longer).
  • Roll out on well-floured pastry cloth or cutting board. Use flour to keep the dough from sticking to fingers, board, etc.
  • Cut cookies with assorted cookie cuttesr.
  • Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Sprinkle with sugar, etc. (or whatever) before baking.
  • Bake at 400° for 5-7 minutes. Be careful, as these can go from almost done to burnt very quickly.
  • Makes approx 6 doz cookies, depending on the size of your cut-outs. I've never timed the prep process, as it's done in 2 stages.
