Orange Amish Sugar Cookies

by Laura

It is Christmas cookie week here at RMK! We are starting this wonderful week off with a sweet iced orange Amish sugar cookies. Orange is one of those flavors that I think of at Christmas. We also had a orange in the toe of our stockings when I was growing up. Plus, orange sticks are a common treat that our family enjoys just at Christmas time.

This is a variation of the Amish sugar cookie recipe that I have shared on the blog before. Same cookie, just with orange zest in the cookie and a sweet orange icing to go on top. Tastes like an orange but in cookie form.

I have 3 more cookie recipes that I will be sharing this week. These are all cookies that would be excellent to make for a Christmas cookie exchange. They are all cookies that are differnet enough that there shouldn’t be anyone with one of these cookies.
