In this post, I’m going to show you a recipe for orange lace cookies that I found at Pastry Pal. I’ve never made anything quite this delicate before, so I’m looking forward to a new challenge.
– 1 cup, 2 tablespoons sugar
– 3/4 cup flour
– 1/2 c orange juice
– 1 orange zest
– 1 stick of butter (melted)
1. Combine the sugar, flour, orange juice, and orange zest in a bowl. Whisk together until well blended.
2. Add the melted butter and whisk until completely combined.
3. Cover and tuck in the fridge overnight (If you can’t wait that long, the original site says that any amount of time greater than 2 hours should work).
4. Pipe quarter sized dollops onto a cookie sheet. You’ll note here that I used a silicone mat. I actually bought this specifically for this recipe because the original said it was very much worth is. And that first post was totally right. Not only do the cookies come off without a fight, but, with the silicone mat I could peel the mat away from the cookie without bothering with a spatula which made life with these bad boys much easier to deal with.
5. Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes or until a pleasant “golden orange”.
6. Let cool for a minute or two on the silicone sheet before attempting to remove.
7. Store in an air tight container and enjoy.
Notes: I love this recipe the cookies have just the right blend of tangyness and sweetness. My centers didn’t firm up quite as well as the ones on Pastry Pal, but they were delicious just the same.
