Share Your Recipe Thursdays… {Frosted Orange Glaze Cookies}

August 15, 2012

This recipe came from the back of a flour bag.

I love anything citrus flavored and after trying out these yummy cookies with a lemon glaze from Katie at Sluiter Nation.

I figured, why not give the orange glaze ones a try.

The citrus flavor is so light and summery to me – perfect for these hot, humid days we’ve been having.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons orange extract

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°.

Beat butter and sugar, in a large bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed until creamy.

Add egg and orange extract, mixing well.

Gradually add the flour, mixing well.

Roll the dough into 1-inch balls .

Place 2-inches apart on a greased baking sheet.

Dip a flat-bottomed glass into sugar and flatten balls.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned.

Cool cookies completely before adding frosting.

Frosting:

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 1/4 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon grated orange peel

1 teaspoon orange extract

1-2 tablespoons milk

Mix all ingredients well until spreading consistency. Spread on cookies. Let dry.

Enjoy!!!
