For the Love of Cookies!

Look SO Very Yummy to Me!

I Make a Pumpkin Cookie
that Look Very Similar to these...

So, I'm More than Excited 
to Give these 
Orange Flavored Cookies 
a Try!

Orange Frosted Cookies
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2-3 Tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Grated orange rind from one small orange
3 cups powdered sugar
2-3 Tablespoons fresh orange juice
Cream shortening and sugars until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg and juice.  Add approx. 1 Tablespoon of grated orange rind. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture. The dough will be firm.   Place small scoopfuls on baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
For the frosting, beat butter, powdered sugar and the remainder of the grated orange rind and orange juice adding juice a spoon at a time until you reach spreading consistency.
Cool cookies on a wire rack. When completely cool, spread frosting on top.

*Memorial Day*

It's not just about BBQ's & a 3 day weekend...

"Memorial Day represents one day of 

national awareness and reverence, 

honoring those Americans who died 

while defending our Nation and its values."

Americans everywhere are encouraged, 
to pause for one minute 
at 3:00 p.m.(local time) 
on Memorial Day, 
to remember and reflect on the
            sacrifices made by so many 
to provide freedom for all.

Have a Wonderful Memorial Day!!!
