Orange Cookies



Actually I wanted to make my favorite Crisp Lemon Cookies but I didn't have enough lemon extract so I changed it to Orange cookies instead. We were given a packet of Lemon cookies by a friend and it was coated with powder sugar and tasted really yummy. Thus, it had given me an idea for my next cookies.



I made this orange cookies using my Crisp Lemon Cookies recipe with one modification. These cookies were really crispy and all of us loved them and it tasted great with the added powder sugar.



Ingredients:

(A)

1 1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 cup powdered sugar

(B)
1/2 cup or 1 stick of butter, softened
2 tsp. orange extract
1/2 tsp. Pure vanilla extract

1 Tbsp. milk
(C)
Powder sugar for coating

Method:

1. In a food processor, add in (A). Pulse to combine.

2. Then, add in (B) and process until a dough is formed. Take it out on a lightly flour surface and give it a few kneads. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with a cookie cutter.

3. Place on a parchment lined baking pan and bake in preheated 350'F oven for 15 minutes or until lightly brown on edges.


4. Place cookies on wire rack to cool completely and then coated each cookie with powder sugar.

The powder sugar adds such a nice beautiful touch to the cookies. you are really good ;D

Kate said...

These sound lovely and delicious. I prefer a very crispy cookie, also. You know, since chocolate and orange go together so well, I'll bet a bar of Lindt Intense Orange Chocolate would be wonderful diced up inside the dough? Perhaps a little sprinkling of cocoa powder? I might try that!

Beachlover said...

Christy said...

Sugar coated....noooo, too sweet...it's diabetic!
But orange flavor...and lemon, sounds very sourish, aren't they?:D

ange said...

looks yummy. i will have to try making these next.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks BBOven, megan, rosa, noobcook. :)

Kate, your version sounded delicious!

Thanks beachlover. Yeah even my hubby who normally doesn't eat cookies couldn't stop eating it.

Christy, actually not too sweet, I think the cookies itself not very sweet, so it paired well with the powder sugar. The lemon and orange don't provide sour taste to the cookie, just the fragrant. Orange fragrant is not as intense as the Lemon, so I still prefer lemon cookies. ;)

Thanks ange, hope you like it.

Hi, I just love your baking posts! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. I'm saving them for when I actually have time to learn to bake.

I'm a big fan of sweets ever since I had my first baby (NO idea why I developed a sweet tooth)?

Little Corner of Mine said...

Yes Tigerfish, very nice.

Haha sig, luckily we don't have that problem here.

Implosion, no idea why you developed sweet tooth. But my baking recipes are fairly easy for beginner to start. ;)
