Orange Drop Cookies......Oh so good

I have a friend name Angie and she brought these cookies over to our house. Megan and I devoured them. Poor Kevin didn't stand a chance.

Orange Drop cookies

1 1/3 cup shortening

1 1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

4 Tbsp grated orange peel

1 cup orange juice

1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

4 cups flour (may need more)

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

Mix shortening, sugar, eggs. Stir in orange juice and grated orange peel. Stir dry ingredients together and blend in. Drop on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 F for 8-10 min. I added an extra 1/2 cup flour to the recipe and they turned out great. When the cookies are cool ice them with the following.


5 Tbsp soft butter

3 cups powdered sugar

3 Tbsp orange juice

4 tsp grated orange peel

Very yummy! Enjoy!


  1. Those sound yummy and different.

  2. I can see why you devoured them, cookies are pretty much off limits for me for a few more months. I'll give them a try at some point.
