  • 1 cup Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Sugar

  • 2 tsp freshly grated Orange Zest
  • 2 tbsp Orange Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 3 cup Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • Yellow and Orange food coloring (Or Red to mix with Yellow to create Orange)
  • 1/3 cup Sugar for dipping cookies
  1. Line the bottom and sides of a loaf pan with plastic wrap and set it to the side for later use.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar (a stand-mixer fitted with the paddle attachment works great). Add egg, orange zest, orange juice and vanilla - Beat until mixed fully together.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture into the butter/sugar mixture, while mixing, until it forms a dough.
  4. Divide the dough into thirds and Press 1/3 of the dough into the bottom of the loaf pan.
  5. Add Yellow food coloring to another 1/3 section of dough. Mix well. Set aside the yellow dough.
  6. Add Orange food coloring (Or mix Red & Yellow if need be) to the last 1/3 of dough and mix well.
  7. Press the orange dough evenly on top of the white dough. Then press the yellow dough on top of the orange dough in a final layer. Pull the plastic wrap loosely over the top of the dough and place the pan into freezer for about 60 to 90 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  9. Lift the dough out of the pan and lay it onto a cutting board and remove plastic wrap. Use a long, sharp knife and cut the dough into 1/4-inch slices.
  10. Cut each slice into 6 small triangles.
  11. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 5 to 7 minutes.
  12. While the cookies are baking, place 1/3 cup of sugar in a small bowl.
  13. Once cookies are ready to come out of the oven, Let them cool for 1 minute, then dip them in the sugar while they are still warm and place on a cooling rack or tray.
