These cookies say Christmas to me almost as much as shortbread cookies with their red and green cherries. I started with Martha Stewart's recipe http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/lime-meltaways and tweaked it a bit because to me orange is more of a Christmas taste than lime.
Divide dough into two equal pieces.
Roll each piece into a roll 1 1/4 " thick.
Wrap rolls in wax paper and refrigerate at least one hour.
Preheat oven to 350F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. *NOTE - I was out of parchment and used wax paper instead and it smoked a fair bit! Slice rolls into 1/8" thick slices and place on paper.
Bake until slightly golden (MS says 13-15 min) about 10 minutes.
Let cookies cool slightly and place in bag with icing sugar to coat.
MS recipe said 10 dozen but I only got 7 dozen. Very tasty orange flavor. Yum! Enjoy!
