How to make it

  • In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat granulated sugar, cream cheese, and butter until fluffy. Beat in egg white and orange peel. At low speed, beat in flour mixture until blended. Gather dough into a ball; wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350. Use parchment paper to line baking sheets instead of greasing. The cookies won't stick, and the baking sheets will stay in better condition.
  • On a floured surface, using a floured rolling pin, roll dough to a ¼ -inch thickness. Using a 1 ½ -heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies. Place 1-inch apart, on the prepared baking sheets. Re-roll scraps; cut out more cookies.
  • Bake cookies until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Place on racks and cool. To prepare glaze, in a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and orange juice. Cool cookies completely on a wire rack before brushing them with glaze. The glaze will spread and become runny if placed on warm cookies.
