Orange Marmalade Cookies

Servings:  Makes 20

 

Ingredients:

 

1/4 cup unsalted butter

softened 1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/2 egg

3 tablespoons orange marmalade

3/4 cup all-purpose flour 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

 

Directions:

 

1 Preheat oven to 375°F Grease a cookie sheet (I just use parchment paper).

 

2 In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and orange marmalade and mix until thoroughly combined. Add additional marmalade if the batter is too stiff.

 

3 In another bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. With the mixer running, slowly add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture until blended.

4 Drop by spoonfuls on the cookie sheet; do not crowd the cookies as the batter will spread during baking. Bake until the cookies spread out and are lightly browned, 8-10 minutes.

 

5 Cool a minute or two on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

 

6 *The original yield was 40 cookies, but I must have made them a little large, because I only ended up with 22.
