grandmas cookbook - Orange Zest Butter Cookies

Orange Butter Cookies with Grand Marnier GlazeWhen it comes to cookies my family tends to favor the "classics" . . . chocolate chip-peanut-butter-oatmeal, plain chocolate chip or plain peanut-butter cookies. But every once in a while I like to try something different and this recipe, which I found on Pinterest, is certainly one I'd like to try! After all, what could be more "yummie" sounding than orange butter cookies?!!!!

Just follow the link and you'll find the recipe . . . for a child-friendly version, leave out the Grand Marnier. These cookies are perfect as a special treat to brighten someone's day, so have your grandchildren help make them and then take them to someone who could stand to have their day brightened! Making cookies is always a fun thing to do with grandchildren and when you combine it with an opportunity to give to others, well, you then have the  opportunity to help build a tradition of caring for and giving to others! 

I'm going to have to get some orange zest because I think my oven will be busy baking these for sure - although I do have lime juice and zest, so maybe I will tweak it a bit and make Lime Zest Butter Cookies.
