Orange Cookies

Making these cookies is almost a tradition for our Christmas get-togethers... Grandma always has a pile of these and her iced sugar cookies (to-die-for!!!) sitting in the kitchen! They're super easy to make and the icing is divine, but you might want to make a little extra (icing) as there never seems to be quite enough. Makes 4 doz.

You'll need:
2/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 cup orange juice
2 T. grated orange rind
2 cups flour 
1/2 t. baking powder

~ Preheat oven to 400*.
~ Mix shortening, sugar, and egg throughly.
~ Stir in orange juice and rind.
~ Then add the dry ingredients and blend together well. 
~ Drop rounded rounded teaspoonfuls about 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned on edges.

21/2 T. soft butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 T. orange juice
2 T. grated orange rind

~ Blend butter and sugar.
~ Add orange juice and rind, stir until smooth.
~ Frost cookies after they have cooled and enjoy!
