Orange Cookies

YUM! These cookies are puffed and have a cake like consistency. I adapted them a bit from the original recipe and they were so tasty!


2 cups white sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Triple-Sec liquor
3/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 tablespoons grated orange zest

1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
4 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar


1.Cream white sugar and shortening; add eggs and stir. Add sour cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla; stir and set aside. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add little by little to the creamed mixture and stir well. Add 3/4 cup orange juice concentrate, Triple- Sec, and 2 tablespoons orange zest. Drop onto greased cookie sheets by teaspoonfuls.

2.Bake at 375 degrees  for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool on racks.
3.To Make Frosting: Mix together 1/2 teaspoon orange zest, 4 Tablespoons of the thawed orange juice concentrate, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 4 Tablespoons of melted butter, 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar or enough to make frosting of spreading consistency. Frost cookies when completely cooled.
