Orange cookies.....


This is my very first attempt in the world of cookies....the main reason I choose to make these orange cookies is they are super simple yet different to plain cookies.

Ingredients:

Eggs:1large

Orange:1nos(grate the outer skin and extract jucie fron the half fruit)

Butter:4tbsp(soften)

Sugar:1cup

All purpose flour:2cups(u could use self raising flour too just omit baking powder & salt)

Salt :1/2 tsp

Baking powder:11/2 tsp
Orange food colour:2 drops(optional)

Procedure:

Mix flour,salt and baking flour keep it aside.

In a large bowl slightly beat egg and add juice,sugar,grated skin and butter beat until light n fluffy

Now add dry ingredients and food colour ,knead it in to dough.

Roll it with a rolling pin and cut in to desired shapes with cookie cutter.Continue the process until u use up all the dough.

Lay them on baking sheet and bake until edges turn slight brown,takes about 15 to 20 min.

cool them on cooling rack and they are ready to eat.
