These cookies come from my Mrs Fields Cookie Book and they're "double orange" cuz they have Mandarin Oranges AND Orange Marmalade in them. They're super refreshing with chunks of mandarin everywhere! Soft and chewy and perfect lil summer cookies!
Ingredients: (4 dozen cookes)
2-3/4 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 c (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 c white sugar
1 large egg
1/2 c orange marmalade
1 (10oz) can mandarin oranges, drained and chopped
1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder.
3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, blend together the butter and sugar to form a grainy paste. Add the egg and orange marmalade, and beat at medium speed until smooth. Add the flour mixture and mandarine oranges, and blend at low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.
4. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets, 1-1/2 inches apart. Bake 24-25 minutes or until the bottoms of cookies begin to brown. Transfer with a spatual to a cool, flat surface.
