Orange Buttercream Sandwich Cookies

Hi Folks! Now that I am back from the honeymooon and happily a DiStefano, its definitely time to get back into baking-gear!

The boys headed up to the hunting cottage last weekend to do some work on the floors, so I thought I would whip up something new for them. I had some frozen white chocolate sugar cookie dough leftover from the wedding.....

But since they were all PRESENT at the wedding I wanted to do something a little different with the dough. Who doesn't like a sandwich cookie?

So I baked up around five dozen little cookie circles, and whipped up a quick batch of buttercream frosting. I had some OJ and orange extrat on hand, so I went with a quick Orange buttercream recipe:


1/3 cup butter, softened

3 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp orange extract

2-4 tablespoons orange juice

To make this frosting, simply blend together the butter and sugar, slowly at first to prevent a powdered sugar explosion. Then add in your liquids and blend until you have your desired texture.

Then it's time to spread the frosting on the cookies, and taste a little of course.

These were yummy, but VERY rich.

Happy Baking!
