Orange Slice Cookie Recipe

Guest Author - Launa Stout

One day, not too long ago, a co-worker brought in a big tub of candy orange slices. She said she had a great recipe and that she wanted to make us some cookies- unfortunately, all the orange slices got eaten that very day- by people coming in and out of our department.

She had gotten this recipe from a friend in Southern California, and even though it uses candy orange slices she always likes to make them when the Navel or Valencia oranges are ripe on the tree.

Off and on through the next few months she mentioned making these cookies…

Finally, I borrowed the recipe, bought a 14 ounce bag of candy orange slices (feel the candies through the bag before you buy them to make sure they are flexible and fresh)and went home to make them.

Ingredients:

• 1 ½ cup brown sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1 teaspoon soda
• 1 pound orange slice candy
• ½ cup flaked coconut
• ½ cup rolled oats
• ½ cup shortening (I used butter flavored Crisco)
• 2 cups sifted flour
• ½ teaspoon salt
• ½ cup chopped nuts (I used sliced almonds)

For coating the orange slice cubes and rolling the cookies:

• ½ cup flour
• ¼ cup sugar

Directions:

Cutting up the orange slices takes a long time – it is a good task to do while making a long phone call.

Cut the slices into small cubes- I used scissors that I coated with some spray on Pam, I also had a bowl with the ½ cup flour that they are dipped in to coat all the sticky sides, and I tried dipping the knife/scissors into the flour and also dipping them into white sugar. Eventually I had the whole bag nicely cut into little cubes with the sides of each cube coated with flour.

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
2. Cream the shortening and sugar and eggs until they are light and fluffy
3. In a large bowl sift the 2 cups of flour and the baking soda and the salt
4. Blend the creamed mixture into the dry ingredients
5. Stir in the coconut, nuts and oatmeal
6. Using a teaspoon scoop up enough to roll into 1 inch balls
7. Roll in the ¼ cup sugar
8. Place them on the greased cookie sheet and press them down lightly with a fork

Bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Yield: 6 dozen

What I thought was the most amazing thing about these cookies is how non-spectacular and ordinary they look- some thought they looked like peanut butter, others hoped they were chocolate chip… but they taste absolutely fabulous.

You have got to try them!
