Sun Shine Sugar Cookies with Orange Frosting




1 cup white sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup shortening

2 eggs

1 cup milk

1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar

1 teaspoon baking soda

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Combine milk with vinegar to make sour milk. Let stand for 5 minutes. In a

large mixing bowl, combine sugars, shortening, eggs, and vanilla. Add flour,

soda, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Stir in sour milk and mix well. NOTE:

Dough will be very sticky and hard to handle so be sure to refrigerate

either several hours or overnight. Roll on well floured board to 1/2 inch

thickness. Cut with cookie cutters to desired shapes-a sun shape or large

round circles are best to signify the sun with large cutters working best.

Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly

brown on bottom. Frost with frosting (see recipe) and decorate. 




3 egg whites

4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

1 teaspoon orange extract

1 Tablespoon of orange rind

1 Tablespoon of Orange Juice



Beat egg whites in clean, large bowl with mixer at high speed until very

foamy Gradually add sugar, rind, orange juice and extract. Beat at high

speed until thickened. Spread over cooled cookies or put in a pastry bag

with a piping tip attached and pipe onto cookies.
