Orange Sugar Cookies




These citrus cookies make a fun treat all year but why not this Easter :-) I had fun making them with our little one and I can't say enough how much blogging has inspired me to bake more :-) thanks to you all for your inspiration. Have a wonderful Easter weekend or Passover depending on what you celebrate may God richly bless you.




Ingredients:

  • 3 1/2 oz of butter softened
  • 3 oz of sugar 
  • one egg separated
  • 7 oz of plain flour
  • rind of one orange
  • 2-3 tablespoon of orange juice
  • about 1/2 a cup of icing sugar and a little water to mix to a paste
  • sprinkles to decorate 
Method:

  1. cream the butter and sugar and slowly add egg yolk
  2. add the flour, orange rind and orange juice forming a soft dough
  3. roll out the mixture  and cut about 15 small rounds with a cookie cutter I used a cup :-)
  4. place on baking paper, prick with a fork 
  5. paste a little whisked egg white onto the cookies and sugar 
  6. bake at 400 for 12- 15 minutes
  7. when cool drizzle with icing and add sprinkles 




Heres a picture of Jasmine learning to do the thumbs up for the cookies we made together :-)

and below is a fun clip of us making Easter cards, we took some cookies and a card to a lovely 109 year old Grandma we know here. Be sure to take a treat to older folks in your community to brighten their day 




Much love and remember God loves you
