Orange Marmalade Cookies

So after using some orange marmalade to make the dipping sauce for our delicious Baked Coconut Shrimp, we were in quite the “orange marmalade adoration” phase.

To be honest, I’m not sure I had really had orange marmalade before. Growing up in the south, the normal jams and jellies we used were grape, strawberry, and blackberry. My own grandmother has been making her own strawberry preserves for years, so we grew up with that as our favorite. I would even make peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwiches instead of the normal American grape jelly!

Anyway, it seems to me that marmalade is traditionally more of a European thing. I must say, however, that I am now quite a fan of it. I’ve always liked citrus flavored things anyway, and the sweet + citrus combination is something I really enjoy.

So here we had this jar of orange marmalade waiting to be eaten with something, and so we started to wonder if there were any kind of cookies we could make and continue our orange theme. Sure enough, a quick search turned up several great recipes for orange cookies, and we decided to go with this particular one that even had orange marmalade frosting.

Recipe from allrecipes.com 

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup shortening (CRISCO)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sweet orange marmalade
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For frosting:

  • 1.5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/8 cup orange marmalade
  • Orange juice (just a bit to thin frosting if needed)

Recipe Directions

In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, shortening, and eggs. Stir in the remaining ingredients and mix well. Then place bowl of dough in the refrigerator to chill for 15-30 minutes.

While dough is chilling, prepare the frosting by beating all the frosting ingredients together, adding a teaspoon or so of orange juice as needed to get the right consistency.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare your baking sheets, using either parchment paper or cooking spray. Remove dough from refrigerator and drop rounded teaspoons of dough onto baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes – cookies should be lightly browned around the edges. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Once cookies are completely cooled, frost them and enjoy!
