4.3.14 The attraction to this recipe was the flavor, not it being cakelike. To help with that, I reduced baking powder to 1t. 'Still very cakelike. I wonder if this is really a cake recipe pretending to be a cookie. I used 1/2c butter & 1/2c shortening. Since some reviews said the cookie itself was on the bland side, I added orange extract, 2t. The orange flavor was noticeable, but not overpowering or artificial tasting. 'First time using orange extract. It's like liquid orange lollipop. No joke. Okay, orange soda without the fizz. Either one. :) I doubled the frosting as suggested, too; but didn't need it all since I just drizzled, didn't cover. About 1 1/2 frosting recipe would be fine. Since so thin, I played with it by adding more than just sugar since it was getting to be like liquid confectionary sugar. :/ I liked the frosting, more like icing, better than the cookies. After "playing," I liked this combination. It's taste is orange extract at first then the zing of the concentrate after. I liked it anyway. :D Here y'are: 1/4c orange juice concentrate, 1/2t orange extract, 1/4t vanilla extract (more than that would cover the orange, I think. Maybe less in the cookies would help, too.), 4 - 5T butter (less than 6T, which I what I used), 2c confectionary sugar, pinch salt. 'Got a reluctant "okay" from boy one. Girl one wouldn't try. She's a fresh, uncooked fruit girl most times. 'Sure the people at work will like. They'll eat anything. Ha!
