Notes

Chill the cookies briefly after icing and garnishing to help the icing set more quickly.

Ingredients

For the cookies

  • 1/2 Cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 Cup C&H® Granulated Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup dry champagne, Prosecco, or white sparkling grape juice
  • 1 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1/2 Cup unsweetened shredded coconut, optional

For orange glaze

  • 2 Cups C&H® Confectioners Sugar
  • 3-4 Tablespoons orange juice

Directions

For the cookies

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment.

In mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar together until fluffy.

Beat in egg; then, champagne.

In a separate bowl, sift or whisk together flour, baking powder, and baking soda; then stir into creamed mixture.

Stir in orange zest and optional coconut.

Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheet.

Bake 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Cool completely before icing

For orange glaze

In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar and 3 tablespoons of the orange juice.

Whisk in more orange juice to obtain the desired spreading consistency.

Spread a thin glaze of the icing over each cookie, letting excess icing spill back into the bowl.

Decorate with additional grated orange zest, grating right over the tops of the cookies while the icing is still wet.
