Orange Cookies

Happy Father's Day ~

Today's treat is an orange cookie that I baked for my cat sitters so I could spend some time with my dad.

Orange Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp orange extract
1 tsp grated orange peel
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cream of tartar

raw sugar

Cream together butter and sugars.  Mix in egg, orange juice and extract.  Gradually mix in the rest of the dry ingredients.  Scoop balls onto parchment lined baking sheets.  Bake for 14 minutes at 325°.  Remove from oven.  Brush tops with water and sprinkle raw sugar on top.  Cool on a baking rack.
