My daughter made these for her guests at her 10th birthday party. They held their shape, didn't puff, tasted delicious! Easy enough for a 9 year old to do totally by herself. We will make these again. the bunnies were so cute!
Has anyone tried doing this recipe in 1/2 only? I tried it, only needed a 24 or 36 batch of cookies, but I got very bad results... the dough was very crumbly and rolled out like a pastry dough. After cooked, it was a little tough (ok with a hot drink), and you couldn't taste much flavour. I do like the idea of this recipe as an Easter Cookie... We get a little tired of the standard sugar cookies right after christmas.
I would just like to add another tip to this recipe.........USE MINI MARSHMALLOWS FOR THE TAILS!! My great grandmother used to make these :)
Very good! The orange taste is different. I used orange juice concentrate instead of orange juice, and reduced the zest to 2 teaspoons and they turned out fine. I was afraid the dough would have to be refrigerated, but it was easy to handle straight out of the mixing bowl.
I used salted butter instead of shortening and ommitted the orange zest, which I did not have. My 6-year-old daughter and I made these and rolled them out into different shapes using small plastic play-dough cutters, then baked them for 8 minutes They rolled out well without refrigeration and held their shape nicely during baking. We made a small batch and put the rest of the dough away for tomorrow. I can't review the taste, because my daughter ate them all while I was tidying up!
Delicious and fast sugar cookie! The orange flavor is yummy- i put orange cream frosting on mine and cut them thicker to make them softer. My dough ended up being too dry, so I just kept adding orange juice until I could roll them out!
This is a great recipe for cut-out cookies. The cookies retains the design from the cutter beautifully. The cut cookie also comes out of the cutter with no difficulty. They taste great too. Excellent recipe. Thanks
Really good sugar cookies! I cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup (but I changed the servings to 36 because I only wanted to use ½ cup of margarine) and I used one very large egg. I omitted the red hots, and I glazed the cookies with a glaze consisting of icing sugar and orange juice. My three-year old then went crazy with the Easter-themed sprinkles. :) The orange was a nice change, and the lesser amount of sugar made them less sweet enough that my husband (not a fan of sweets) enjoyed. Thanks so much for sharing, Carol!
