Yummy Sugar Cookie Recipe

Last Christmas, I found this recipe in the Food Network magazine.  I loved the hint of orange in these cookies and the ease of the recipe.

Stars of the recipe:

  • 2 sticks of unsalted

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar (powdered sugar)

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 tsp. orange zest

  • 2 and 1/4 c. flour

  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp. salt


  1. Beat butter, granulated sugar, and confectioners' sugar until fluffy.

  2. Beat in egg yolks, vanilla and orange zest.

  3. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl and then add it to butter mixture.  Stir until well incorporated.

  4. Chill for 30 minutes.

  5. Roll tablespoons into balls and flatten; sprinkle with coarse sugar. 

  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
