Orange Cookies

Orange Cookies
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 Tbsp. dried grated orange rind
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour


1. Combine flour, baking powder and orange rind - stir well. Place flour mixture in a clean mason jar. Pack down tight so everything will fit in the jar. (Use a spoon or a mallet.) Add other ingredients, one item at a time, packing each layer down.

2. Put the lid on the jar and tie a ribbon around the lid. You can add a personalized label, if you wish. As an added touch, tie a wooden spoon to the lid with a piece of ribbon.

Print out the following instructions on a gift card and tape the card to the jar:

Whip 1 cup of butter or shortening until light and fluffy.
Add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 tsp. vanilla and beat until mixed. Stir in the ingredients from this jar until well combined.
Drop teaspoons of dough on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees F.
You can ice these with a thin icing made of 1 cup icing sugar and enough orange juice to make the icing spreadable.
