Grandma Brubaker’s Orange Cookies
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
Makesabout 6 dozen
These are very good. Nice orange flavor
These came out great. Thanks to the reviewer who suggested white chocolate chips. I will put which chocolate chips in anything I can! Scones, Bread Pudding, Raspberry/White chocolate chip pancakes. ONLY use real butter and I never measure frosting ingredients. Just keep making. Also add melted butter to frosting ingredients. Sprinkled a bit of sanding sugar on top.
The batter smelled like spoiled milk, but once baked, the cookies smelled and tasted delicious! They are soft and so good!
I made these cookies to share with some new colleagues and they all raved about them. It was nice to have something besides chocolate. I had to bake these at 350 degrees for 13 minutes to get them done. At 325, they weren't quite done after 15 minutes.
Terrible! I'm so glad I noticed this recipe was for 60 cookies before I got too far! These cookies turned out bland, the icing proportions were way off and there wasn't enough to cover the cookies. The amount of liquid to powder sugar was off too. Too much work with very little reward.
4.5 stars. I didn't have any, but my husband seemed to enjoy them. I made 1/2 a recipe which yielded approx. 40 cookies. However, the next time I will make the whole frosting recipe as there wasn't enough to cover all of the cookies. And the cookies it did cover the frosting was thin, more like a glaze. I would also use more orange zest in the cookies and the frosting too.
Delicious. I ALWAYS use real butter in baking!! Also, although this is a perfect recipe without them, I added white vanilla baking chips to the mix.
This was an Indiana State Fair grand prize winner years ago and was published in the paper. It's been a family favorite for years.
I cannot wait to try. What do you use for shortening?
This has been a tried and true recipe in our family for at least three generations. Love the mild orange flavor and the softness of the cookies. The recipe does make a lot of cookies and I omit the orange zest, mainly because I never have it in the pantry and the kids prefer it without.
