Freshly squeezed orange juice helps turn these Double-Orange Glazed Cookies into a tasty, sunny treat that they won't be able to stop snackin' on. Bake these "doubly-orangey-good" cookies when you're looking for a sunshine-y way to brighten up your gang!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed orange juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated orange zest, divided
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar until creamy. Add 1 cup orange juice and 1 teaspoon orange zest; mix well.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; beat until well combined. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets.
  4. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until edges are golden. Let cool 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine confectioners sugar, the remaining orange juice, and remaining orange zest; mix well. Spoon icing over cookies and let sit until icing is firm.

My favorite cookie! Sometimes I cook 2 or 3 carrots mash them and add to batter. You see the orange carrots, but it tastes like oranges! Makes it very moist, too!

I'm curious about making them with lemons, too. My local grocery had a big sale on Meyer lemons and they were just too pretty to resist. Now I have to use them, but all the recipes I've found were stupidly complicated.

Hi Sue, We haven't tested this recipe with lemons, but don't believe it would work as the substitution of 1 cup of orange juice for 1 cup of lemon juice wouldn't equal in taste. However, we do have some great lemon cookies you might want to try, like our Glazed Lemon Zucchini Cookies and Italian Lemon Cookies.

I wonder if these could be made with lemons instead.

Usually I'm not a fan of cakey cookies, but these were pretty good. I think the glaze put them in a whole different category. Loved the fresh zest, the flavor really came through.
