DIRECTIONS

  • Combine sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy.
  • Add egg, 3 tablespoons orange juice, orange peel and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed.
  • Reduce speed to low; add flour and salt. Beat until just combined.
  • Divide dough in half. Wrap each half in plastic food wrap; flatten slightly. Refrigerate until firm (2 hours).
  • Heat oven to 375°F Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch flower-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, combine powdered sugar and butter in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough orange juice for desired spreading consistency (2 to 3 minutes). Frost cooled cookies. Decorate with sugars, if desired. .
