Orange Slice Cookie Recipe #1

The blog would not be complete without a few recipes for Orange Slice cookies. These are favorite of kids and adults alike. A taste of nostalgia for some and pure sweetness for all!

1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups quick cooking oats
2 cups orange fruit candies
(this is a fairly large recipe, so if you don’t want as many cookies, half!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, cream the sugars and shortening until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well. Stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Mix into the creamed mixture.

Stir in the oats and the candies. You will want to snip the orange slices before mixing. Best to dip a pair of kitchen shears into a glass of hot water to make it easier. Roll cookies into balls and place on greased cookie sheets.

Bakes at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove, cook and enjoy!
