Directions

COOKIES: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients alternately with cream. Roll out cookie dough 1/4″ thick, on lightly floured surface. Cut into rounds about 2½″ in diameter and place on silpat lined or lightly sprayed baking sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE. They will be nice & soft if you don’t overbake. Cool completely before frosting. CREAM FROSTING: Cream butter, shortening, and vanilla with electric mixer. Slowly mix in powdered sugar one cup at a time. Add cream to make perfect spreading consistency (this frosting layer can be a little firmer than the top layer). Frost cooled cookies. Let cookies sit until frosting set enough to frost with orange frosting layer. ORANGE CREAM FROSTING: Mix butter, powdered sugar, orange juice, and vanilla with electric mixer. Add and mix in drops of food coloring one at a time to achieve desired orange (I used 5 drops each of yellow & red). Spread layer of orange frosting over cream frosting on each cookie. Melt 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips in microwave and drizzle over cookies if desired.
