Orange Cookie: VIRTUAL COOKIE SWAP

Gotta love how my family loves holiday baking! Here is a recipe for an Orange Cookie from my cousin Win.

Hope you all enjoy.

ORANGE COOKIE

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
6 oz (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
½ cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated salt
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. fresh orange juice
1 tbsp. grated orange zest
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl and set aside
In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar on medium, until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between additions
Add the vanilla, orange juice, lemon juice, and orange zest
Beat to combine
With the mixer off, add the flour mixture admix until just combined
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour
Roll the dough into 4 logs, each about 1 1/2 inch in diameter and 10 to 12 inches long
Chill or freeze until firm enough to cut without losing their shape
Preheat oven to 350’ F, line baking sheets with parchment paper
Cut the logs into 1/4 (to 1/2) inch rounds and place on prepared baking sheets
Bake for 15 minutes or until the cookies are golden
Cool on wire racks
When cooled glaze with orange glaze (recipe follows)

Orange Glaze:
2 ½ cups confectioners’ sugar
¼ cup fresh orange juice
Sift the confectioners’ sugar into a bowl and whisk in the orange juice
Dip the cookies into the glaze, which should form a thin layer
Repeat the glazing and then let the cookies set on a wire rack
