“This recipe is an updated version of #76004 on this site. As a result of the comments on this recipe, this reworking turned out to be some of the tastiest cookies I've ever had. Recipe yield is too small!”
2-3 dozen

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter and sugar.
  2. Blend in flavorings: orange zest, salt, cinnamon, clove, ginger, nutmeg, vanilla.
  3. Incorporate yolk, then flour.
  4. Divide in two balls, wrap separately and chill at least 1/2 hour.
  5. Use cookie cutters on dough rolled 1/4 inch thick (thinner for crispy cookies, thicker for chewier).
  6. Bake 15 minutes at 375-degrees.
  7. Frost with any icing. For Haloween we used powdered sugar (maybe 3 cups? Sorry, don't know quantity) mixed with cream cheese (2 Tablespoons) flavored with orange zest (1/2 teaspoon) and maple syrup (1/4 cup). Add milk to moisten to proper consistency (just add by the dropful; a little goes a long way and you want the resulting icing thick enough not to run off the cookies). Apply sprinkles to wet frosting so they harden on top.
