Orange Christmas Cookies Recipe

Ever wanted to make a different kind of cookie for Christmas? These cookies would be just perfect for you as they are light, original and so tasty.

These cookies are not really orange in color but they sure have got the flavor. I first made those a few days before Christmas in 2007 to test them out and they turned out so tasty that none of it was left by the afternoon. Since I am of the generous kind, I thought I would share the recipe with you.

Note: This is a non-egg recipe.

So the ingredients for the Orange Cookies are:
150g of flour
1 pinch of salt
75 of caster sugar
25g of soft brown sugar
75g of margarine
2 tablespoon of liquid milk
1/2 teaspoon of orange essence
100g of lemon/orange peels cooked in sugar

So firstly I've creamed the butter in a salad bowl using a spoon
then I've added the 2 sugars and mixed till the mixture is light and fluffy
the I've added the milk to the mixture while still mixing the content of the bowl
the the orange essence has been added
and then I've folded in the flour and fruit peels
Then it was the turn of the oven to do his job! After cooking for 20 minutes at a temperature of 170 degrees Celsius, the cookies are ready!

It would be ideal to leave them in an open space and let them cool down before serving.

  1. I tasted these. Very good. I'm not a fan of orange flavor cakes, but this one's good.
