Buttery Orange Sugar Cookies
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
When I saw the ingredients, I thought the cookie recipe was probably made with what was on hand-perhaps eggs for example were in short supply. The recipe is probably great as is, this is how I made them though., using what was on hand, and what I wanted to use up..(keeping the other ingredients the same)...Used 1 cup white flour, 1 cup ww. pastry flour., I also added one egg, about 1 tablespoon of juice from the orange. I used 1/2 cup butter, 6T coconut oil, and 2 Tablespoons blood-orange infused olive oil. I also, as someone mentioned, rolled into balls, and pressed lightly with the bottom of a sugar-coat glass. They were fantastic! I think that's the beauty of home cooking, you can, with your experiences, tailor a recipe to your own taste.
I just made these and my family loved them! I used all purpose flour and added extra zest (2 teaspoons) and extra juice (1 teaspoon) of fresh squeezed juice from the orange. So fragrant and tasty!
Horrible cookies! I wonder if you actually test the recipes that you post, as none of the recipes I've ever tried on your Taste of Home site are any good. I'm done with you.
These are the most fragrant and most delicious of all the cookies I've tried. Instead of being heavy and dense, these cookies are light and fluffy, though I had to make a few changes: I only used white flour, I added an egg to the mixture, and I added two teaspoons of fresh orange juice for additional freshness (and a teaspoon of flour to balance it out).
These are delicious. I was a bit concerned that there wasn't an egg in the ingredients, but they came out perfect. Light and crispy. I made them twice. The first time as written, and the second time I replaced 1 cup of the all-purpose flour with white whole wheat. This is a keeper. In answer to another reviewers question, I used Bob's Red Mill Dark Rye Flour that I got at Safeway.
A delicious & easy cookie! Had to make a few changes to it, though. I used only all-purpose white flour. You do need to add one egg to the butter & sugar mixture because the dough was too dry. (I'd wonder about the absence of an egg!) Also, I rolled the dough into 1" balls & then used a glass dipped in sugar to lightly press them. And, DO NOT let them sit on the pan for 2 minutes! I had to put my air-bake pans back in the oven to get hot so I could get them off easily! Delicious, crispy cookies with a wonderful orange flavor.
Where in the world do you find rye flour and why is that kind necessary for a cookie??
These sound delicious. Do the balls flatten out when baking? I'm worried about having nice, crispy cookies.
