Orange Pecan Cookies Recipe


3 C. sifted flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 C. sugar
1 C. brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 T. grated orange rind
1/2 C. sour cream
3/4 C. butter
1 C. chopped pecans
Pecan halves for garnish (about 8 ounces)

Frosting:
2 C. sifted powdered sugar
1 t. grated orange rind
1/8 t. salt
3 T. orange juice
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Cream butter, then gradually add the sugar and brown sugar, creaming well. Add eggs and orange rind; beat well. Stir in sour cream, then blend in dry ingredients. Stir in chopped pecans.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 F on middle shelf of oven for 8 to 10 minutes.

To make the frosting, whisk together ingredients until they reach a consistency suitable for spreading on the cookies. Frost cookies while still warm and garnish each with a pecan half.
