Mom's Orange Delight Cookies

Mom was a farmer's wife, tended a huge vegetable garden, worked full-time as a secretary, raised three kids, and always found time to bake cookies. She usually made Orange Delight Cookies in January, after we had finished all of the different kinds of Christmas cookies she had baked.

These cookies have a "cake-like" texture with an orange juice and sugar glaze on top. The cookies should be baked at least one day in advance to bring out the flavors. The cookies actually get better with age up to two weeks.

Fresh homemade cookies were the standard snack we grew up with. We continue this tradition at Country Comforts and always have fresh-baked cookies ready for our guests, mostly using Mom's recipes. ... Mim Jacobson
