1 1/2 cups
3 3/4 cups
whole orange with peel - chopped, seeded and puree
Honestly one of the best cookies I've ever made (and I've made a lot!). Would be excellent with dried cranberries or maybe even chocolate chips.
I tried this recipe because it sounded so different. But unfortunately we didn't love it. Too cakey. Not orangey enough. And didn't seem to set up well enough without over baking. Sorry! Thanks for sharing!
A nice fresh cake cookie, but after baking 1st batch I added some nuts. May try part shortening & part marg next time. This recipe makes a lot more than 3 doz. Will try putting cranberries in for fall. We did use an orange glaze to frost from the Cranberry Orange Cookie recipe.
These were very good! And easy to make, it takes just a few minutes to mix everything. The whole orange is an awesome idea, gives the cookies an interesting, more original taste. I halved everything except the orange, used olive oil instead of shortening and cinnamon + cloves because I ran out of vanilla. Next time I will try with vanilla as well. Thanks for the recipe!
I use to make these cookies with my mom but lost the recipe! Thank goodness this was posted it is exact and soooo good! My family loves it when I make these!
I like this recipe. I've made this a couple times and the yield is somewhere between 10-12 dozen cookies, dropping at teaspoon sizes on the baking sheet. I added sprinkles or colored sugar on top of the drops before baking. They are refreshingly different! Thank you!
I made a small batch of these because I was convinced they would be too zesty. I was right. I made a second batch using 2 pureed oranges without the peel or pith and added 1 tablespoon of zest and 1/3 cup less milk. MUCH BETTER.
I also arrange dried cranberries on half of the batch before baking. They were a welcome addition
These cookies are so light and wonderful, just the right amount of orange flavor.
