For the cookie dough:
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup Crisco® shortening
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup Smucker's Sweet Orange Marmalade
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the frosting:
3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine (at room temperature)
1/4 cup Smucker's Sweet Orange Marmalade
orange juice (to thin frosting if necessary)
1. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, shortening and eggs; beat until well
mixed. Add sour cream and marmalade; mix well. Add remaining ingredients and mix
well. Chill dough in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour or until cool.
2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400° and coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
Prepare frosting: in a medium mixing bowl, beat all frosting ingredients
together, adding orange juice only as needed to make frosting spreadable. Set
3. Remove dough from refrigerator. Using a teaspoon, drop rounded spoonfuls of
dough onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly
browned on edges. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
4. Frost each cooled cookie.
Yield: 60 cookies
