Frosted Orange Cookies Recipe

Frosted Orange Cookies
2 medium oranges
1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

With a sharp knife, score each orange into quarters; remove peel. Use knife to remove white pith from peel and fruit; discard.  Quarter oranges and place in a blender.  Add peel; cover and process until smooth (mixture should measure 3/4 cup).

  •    In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in milk and 6 tablespoons orange mixture. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture until blended.

    Bake at 350° for 10-13 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  •    For frosting, in a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar, butter and enough of the remaining orange mixture to achieve spreading consistency. Frost cookies.
    Yield: about 4 dozen.
