Orange Cinnamon Cookies

One of my favorite snacks long ago was orange cinnamon rolls. A few months back, while trying to come up with ideas for a new cookie recipe, I remembered how good these tasted. I figured that I could make cookies that have the same taste, but weren't as messy to eat. A bit of dabbling later, and you can now share the wonderful results of this strange thought process

Orange Cinnamon Cookies

1 C butter
2 C sugar
2 eggs
1 C buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp orange extract
4 C flour
1 C cinnamon chips

4 tbsp butter
2 C powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
3-6 tbsp hot water

Preheat oven to 375F

1. Beat butter until fluffy. Add sugar, beat until mixed. Add eggs and buttermilk, beat until smooth. Add vanilla, orange extract, baking soda, beat until mixed. Mix in flour 1C or so at a time until combined. Use spatula to fold in cinnamon chips.

2. Drop onto cookie sheets in approximately 1.5 tbsp size

3. Cook 10-12 minutes

4. Put on rack to cool.

5. Melt butter in saucepan over medium-low heat. Add vanilla extract and powdered sugar, stir until smooth. Add water 1 tbsp at a time until reaches desired consistency. Use a pastry brush to spread icing on each cookie.


You can now find these cookies on our Etsy store!
