Orange Poppy Seed Cookies

I have an orange cookie recipe I've been making for years and I love poppy seed muffins...hello, let's combine the two! These cookies have a soft cake-like texture and the addition of the poppy seeds gives them a little crunch and a unique flavor. 


Orange Poppy Seed Cookies {Over The Apple Tree}

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 c shortening
  • 1 c sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 c orange juice
  • 1/2-1 tsp orange zest
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
Combine shortening, sugar and eggs with mixer. Add orange juice, orange zest and poppy seeds.

Stir together four, salt and baking soda, then add to the rest of ingredients, stir just till all ingredients are combined. 

Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet and bake in a 400° oven for about 10 minutes or till cookies start to brown around edges.

When cookies are cooled you can top them with orange icing made from powdered sugar and orange juice.
