More About This Recipe
  • Packed with citrusy orange peel and orange juice, these fresh orange cookies are the real deal. This recipe yields a whopping 72 servings, which means you can get all your favorite citrus flavor and then some! A little zest goes a long way—grating the orange peel releases concentrated oils that are in the fruit’s skin, so having a few tablespoons in the dough and even more in the frosting will give you some serious orange flavor. Use a microplane grater, box grater or vegetable peeler to grate the peel easily. Making cookies from scratch for the first time? We’ve got the tips and tricks to make your new favorite cookie.
