How to make it

  • Cream together sugar and butter.
  • Add eggs, peel and extract, mixing well.
  • Add flour, salt and baking powder alternately with the milk, to the creamed mixture.
  • Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, until bottoms are very lightly browned - do not overbake or the cookies will be dry!
  • Remove cookies from baking sheet and immediately dip and swirl the tops of each cookie in the dipping sauce (the heat from the cookie will create a glaze on the cookie when dipped, and the warmth seems to help the cookies absorb some of the sauce).
  • You will want to keep stirring the sauce, to keep it blended well - I usually stir with one hand and dip the cookies with the other hand.
  • Cool dipped cookies on waxed paper...some of the glazed sauce will drip down the sides of the cookies - that's ok. As the cookies sit and cool, they tend to absorb some of the little puddles of glaze.
  • For Dipping Sauce, mix all ingredients together in shallow bowl. Prepare the sauce before you begin mixing up the cookies so it can set awhile and the sugar can dissolve a bit.
  • NOTE: to sour milk, add 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice to ½ cup whole milk and stir; let sit for 10 minutes...whole milk will work best for this.

    Krum, I'm such a nut about orange and citrus, you know these will be made at our house soon. Love the tip on the buttermilk. Not everyone appreciates the buttermilk flavor and this way they can still try the cookie and not have to buy a separate bottle of milk. Frugality at its' finest. Love those Grandma's.
