Cookie Recipe # 299 - Mandarin and Marmalade Cookies
Double orange flavor added to this recipe makes a soft, citrusy cookie.
Ingredients: 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 cup butter, softened, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 large egg, 1/2 cup orange marmalade (I used ginger and orange which gave it a spicier flavor), 1 (10 ounces)can mandarin oranges, drained and chopped.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix flour and baking powder together in a small bowl; set aside. In a large mixing bowl blend butter and sugar to form a grainy paste. Add egg and orange marmalade, beating until smooth. Add the flour mixture and the oranges mixing just until blended. Do not overmix.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 24-25 minutes or until the bottoms of cookies begin to brown.
Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
