Orange Slice Cookies

Soft candy orange slices are a refreshing addition to these crispy vanilla chip cookies from Britt Strain, Idaho Falls, Idaho. To quickly cut the orange candy, use scissors, rinsing the blades with cold water occasionally to reduce sticking.

    Loved the hint about using scissors to cut the orange slices. I put some ice cubes in a glass and filled with water. I dipped the scissors in the glass often and not sticking!!! Had my 4H group make this cookie. The dough was rather dry and hard to incorporate all the ingredients. I had them add 2 tbsp. of milk so they could be mixed. Flavor was good.

    Very good crispy cookie ... Was unclear as to whether to incorporate the sugar (1/4 cup) remaining from dredging the candy so I chose NOT to use the residual into the dough ~~ after testing the cookie, it really does not need it. ~~ Thanks for sharing!
