Orange pecan icebox cookies

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Butter
½ cup Brown sugar
½ cup White sugar
1 \N Beaten egg
2 tablespoons Frozen orange juice concentrate
1 tablespoon Grated orange rind
2 cups Flour
¼ teaspoon Baking soda
½ cup Chopped pecans

In a mixer bowl, place the butter, brown sugar, white sugar and egg. Beat to blend. Add the orange juice and orange rind, then add the flour, mixed with the baking soda, ½ cup at a time, beating after each addition.

Remove from beaters and stir in the pecans. Place half of the dough on a sheet of waxed paper. Form the dough into a log 1½ to 2" in diameter, and roll in the waxed paper. Tape ends. Repeat with remaining dough.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours so that the dough is thoroughly chilled.

Slice ¼" thick onto a baking sheet. Cookies spread slightly so separate them by about 1".

Bake 10 to 12 minutes at 375 degrees. Watch after 6 minutes. When baked remove sheet from the oven and immediately remove cookies to a cooling rack.

The recipe makes 80 small cookies.
