Sunshine Orange Cookies

These are my favorite orange cookies. They are different from most recipes because they call for orange juice concentrate rather than just orange juice. They pack alot of pure orange flavor and are frosted with an orange buttercream frosting. Sunshine in a cookie!

  • Cream shortening and sugar.

  • ***Frosting***.
  • Cream sugar and butter together.
  • Add orange juice and zest; blend well. I start with the smaller amount than add more to increase orange flavor to desired level.
  • Add milk a little at a time until frosting is spreadable.

    Perfect... just like from the Itallian bakeries! Soft, moist and an extra kick of orange. I did make 1/2 of the frosting recipe and had plenty of frosting. I made two batches, 1 orange and 1 lemon, using lemonade concentrate and lemon rind... AWESOME! Thanks!

    I've been looking for this recipe for a while. These are so tender and delicious! These kind of remind me of the Italian cookies we get. Would be great with other flavors; even just vanilla with some sprinkles would be wonderful! Great cookie!

    We had some frosted orange cookies from a bakery about 100 miles from where we live and have been searching for a comparable recipe ever since. This is it. Great taste and texture. My sweet tooth had an orgasm. Thanks akgrown.

    My husband really likes this recipe. It's not one of my favorites, however. It does leave an orange aftertaste for quite a while. One note for those of you who might try this: Cut the frosting recipe in half, as it makes WAY too much!

    These are good. I was expecting more of a sugar-cookie like cookie and these turned out sort of cake like. That's okay! We liked them anyway. :)
