Orange Cocoa Sandies

Knock-knock. Who's there? Orange. Orange who? "Orange" ya glad these cookies are so simple to make and taste so yummy?

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F.

  2. In a large bowl, beat the butter, flour, 1 cup confectioners' sugar, the cocoa, pecans, and extract for 2 to 3 minutes, or until well blended.

  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls about 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until set. Allow to cool slightly then dust with the remaining 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar. Serve or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Notes

For traditional pecan sandies, leave out the cocoa, change the orange extract to vanilla, and increase the flour to 2 cups.
