  • 1

    /13 cup flour

  • ¾

    cup icing sugar

  • 3

    egg whites, lightly beaten

  • 2

    egg yolks, lightly beaten

  • 1

    tsp. grated orange zest

  • 1

    tbsp. orange liqueur

  • 1

    large orange


Combine flour and sugar. Add egg white, egg yolks, orange zest and liqueur. Mix well. Let batter sit for 20 minutes. Grease a baking sheet and mark three 5-inch circles on the surface (using a saucer as a guide), place them well apart. Using a tablespoon, drop 1 spoonful of batter in the center of each circle, spreading batter to cover area evenly and neatly. Bake cookies at 350F for 5 to 6 minutes or until edges are browning but center is still soft. Working quickly, remove cookies with a spatula and form cupped shapes, using the whole orange as a mold. Set molded cookies on a rack to cool. If cookies cool too quickly before molding, soften in warm oven. Regrease cookie sheet and continue as above until all batter is used up.
