2 cups sugar 1 cup butter (2 sticks) softened 4 eggs 2 tsp orange extract ½ tsp vanilla extract 1 tsp. orange zest 1½ cups flour 1 tsp salt
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp orange juice, squeezed fresh from the orange
1 tsp orange zest
Beat butter and sugar. If the butter is not softened, please do not melt it in the microwave! You want to add air to the solid of the butter, the sugar creams it. If you can't wait, try cutting the butter into ½ inch pats!
