Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 3-5 drops of bottled orange extract
  • 2 oranges, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp orange juice


Blend the butter with sugar to make a smooth cream. Add orange juice, eggs, chopped oranges and orange peel. Mix thoroughly with baking powder and flour. Keep in fridge until the mixture gets stiff.

Divide the dough into cookies and place them in a buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with sugar and garnish with dry fruits if desired.

Bake the cookies at 250 F for 20 min.

These cookies can be stored in a airtight container for several days.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
