  1. In large mixing bowl, cream together sugars and shortening till fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into creamed mixture.
  2. Stir in the oats, and the orange candy. NOTE: Dip a pair of kitchen shears into a glass of hot water or spray with a non-stick spray to make snipping the orange slices easier. Using about one tablespoon of mixture for each cookie, roll into one inch balls. Place on greased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove and cool on a wire rack.

I’m somewhat torn on this review… this is an absolutely beautiful cookie – thick and pretty, with little orange chunks of the orange candy peeking through. They’re the prized light and crispy along the edges and soft and chewy on the inside. Just a perfect cookie but in my view not as good as it could be because, I’m afraid, of the orange slice candy, which made these TOO sweet. Hubs, however, would disagree. He loved the little pockets of intense orange sweetness. For myself, I’d love to see any number of things substituted for the candy (chocolate chips, dried berries, coconut, nuts, chopped candy bars, raisins, etc.), given that the cookie itself was so perfect.


These were really tasty cookies. Crispy like a sugar cookie, chewy candy orange bits that were a surprisingly nice change. Next time I will cut the candies into smaller bits. I cut each one into 4 pieces, but even smaller would have been better. I only got 4 dozen cookies from this instead of the stated 6. These could probably be done with spice drop candies and other gummy candies as well. The batter is really great on it's own and doesn't really even need the candy to make the cookie good.


I just made these and they are wonderful. Even my picky husband liked them. The orange slices add a great sweet taste. A real keeper!
