Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray, such as Crisco® Butter Flavor or Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough, such as Pillsbury™
  • ½  Cup  buttermilk
  • 2½  Teaspoons  grated orange peel
  • 1½  Teaspoon  pure orange extract, such as Watkins™
  • ½  Teaspoon  baking powder
  • egg
  • 1  Cup  powdered sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 6 jumbo muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray, or place a muffin liner in each cup.

In a large bowl, break up the cookie dough. Add the buttermilk, 2 teaspoons of the orange peel, 1 teaspoon of the orange extract, the baking powder, and egg. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until well blended, 30 to 60 seconds. Spoon about ⅓ cup batter into each muffin cup, filling them about two-thirds full.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the pan to a cooling rack. Cool 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar, remaining ½ teaspoon of the orange extract, remaining ½ teaspoon of the orange peel, and 2 to 3 teaspoons water until smooth and thin enough to glaze. Remove the baking cups from the muffins, if used. Spoon and spread the glaze over the muffins, allowing some to drip down the sides. Serve warm. Store covered.

Orange Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Orange Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
