|½ cup||Butter, softened|
|1 tablespoon||Orange juice|
|1 teaspoon||Baking powder|
|½ teaspoon||Baking soda|
|2 cups||All-purpose flour|
|⅓ cup||Finely chopped walnuts|
In mixer bowl, beat cooking oil into butter until blended, beat in sugar.
Add orange juice, baking powder and baking soda, mix well. Add flour, a little at a time, to make a soft dough. Shape dough into 2-inch ovals and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Cool pastries on rack. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the ¾ cup sugar, honey and ½ cup water, bring to a boil, boil gently, uncovered for 5 minutes. Dip cooled pastries into the warm syrup.
Sprinkle immediately with nuts. Dry on wire rack.
