I got snowed in this weekend so i spent it baking christmas cookies.. i ran out of butter on saturday and only had shortening left, so i found this recipe and wow.. it is a keeper!! I made spritz cookies and the dough was sooooo delicious that i tried it for sugar cookie cutouts as well. They turned out great!! Thanks, Barb, this is a great recipe!!



It is a great recipe. Not a lot of flour taste(that's good), the orange flavor is a nice change, nice and light, and they would be great served with sherbet. I added more orange juice and a bit of water because I used a frosting bag and a large frosting tip. The taste is really good, for stronger flavor you could try using orange flavoring(don't add too much!!) instead of orange juice. I also melted a bag of chocolate chips in a doubble boiler with 3-4 TBS. of shortning and after it was melted I used some dried mint leaves (from our own garden), chopped them up very fine in the food processor and then put them through a flour sifter and then added that to the melted chocolate and half dipped the cookies. YUM!



Very good spritz cookies. I didn't have enough shortening so I used 2/3 cup shortening and 1/3 cup butter. They were still wonderful- also used 2 tsp of orange juice and one of orange flavoring since I didn't have orange zest- the orange flavor was still amazing- Now I'm off to dip them in chocolate!
