Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Decorate cookies with icing. makes about 3 dozen.

Orange icing
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons melted butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon orange extract (or lemon, if you don’t have orange)
1 to 2 Tablespoons orange juice

Combine powdered sugar, butter or margarine, orange extract and enough orange juice to make a thick glaze. Mine was so thick I had to heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds. The original recipe only had 1 Tablespoon butter, but I needed 2 to make it spreadable.

Original recipe was in the WE Energies Cookie Book from 2006.
