ORANGE SLICE COOKIES

This recipe for Orange Slice Cookies is straight from my nana’s kitchen. These definitely evoke memories from childhood. I did make a couple tweaks to the recipe that better suits what those in my house like. For instance, her recipe called for equal parts oleo (margarine) and crisco, I NEVER use margarine and the only time I ever use lard is for my refried beans recipe. So, I changed it to real butter and doubled it to replace the lard. I, also, cut the amount of orange slice candies in half, but if you like more, then, by all means, add a full cup.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR ORANGE SLICE COOKIES

I typically dice the orange slice candies into very small pieces, so that you just get a little hint of it in a bite. Some prefer bigger bites of the candy, and that is okay, too. Dice them up however you prefer.

Some people don’t like the orange slice candies at all, so, if you are one who doesn’t enjoy the orange candy, simply leave that ingredient out…they are still yummy.

I generally only cover baked goodies with a flour sack towel, but these cookies tend to dry out quickly, so I cover them in a container that has a lid, or plastic wrap.

Instructions

  • Cut orange candies into small pieces and sprinkle with about a tablespoon of flour, making sure all sides of the candies are coated with some flour. Set aside.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350℉

  • Add the brown sugar and mix until well blended.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla until well incorporated.
  • Next, add the uncooked oatmeal, shredded coconut, chopped pecans and the orange candies. At this point I still use the electric mixer to mix the ingredients.
  • Lastly, add the corn flakes (or frosted flakes). Fold the corn flakes/frosted flakes in until well distributed.
  • Use a small ice cream scoop to place batter onto a baking tray, twelve per tray
  • Bake for 10 -13 minutes, or to your desired level of soft or toasty goodness.
  • After removing the baked cookies from the oven, let them rest on the baking tray for 5 minutes and then move them to a cooling rack until completely cooled.
