Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in one egg yolk until completely incorporated. Beat in the other egg yolk along with the orange juice and vanilla. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into desired holiday shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Happy Chanukah in October? I made these because they sounded delicious and indeed they are! I didn't have orange juice, but did have orange extract. It gave them a nice subtle orange flavor, and the house smells wonderful. I have no sense of depth, so some of mine are rolled too thick, and some too thin. The too thin are actually perfect. They're very crisp, got nicely brown around the edges, and held their shape very well. I was concerned with no chill time for this dough that they'd expand, but most of mine were fine. The ones that were too thick did spread a bit but that was my fault. The dough was easy to work with, too. I lightly floured my rolling surface, and they were easy to peel off and bake. I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe since cutout cookies are usually a real pain to me. But I'll make these again for sure.

As this was posted when the holiday was almost over I am certainly baked out but I have saved it for next year. The ingrediants appear to be very child friendly in terms of a sturdy dough and the orange juice will give a bright flavor. This would be a good child friendly base for hamentaschen also.
