Orange Slice Cookies

Let’s get cooking, shall we.. This splendid recipe is not only zesty and succulent, but it also looks absolutely stunning. If you serve these up at a party, you’re sure to be the talk of the town! Here’s what you’ll need to get started:


– 2 sticks of room temperature unsalted butter

– Orange slices to decorate


Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

Step 2: In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the orange zest, vanilla extract and beat until combined.

Step 3: In a separate bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add it to the butter-sugar mixture until a soft dough forms.
