So yesterday, I decided to whip some up. However, something has happened. My relationship with the orange blossoms has changed. It took me about six cookies to decide if I still liked them. After the sixth one, I knew. My feelings for them changed. I felt sick. Seriously too many blossoms.
I couldn't believe it, but I decided to give them another go this morning. And then it hit me. They have a little bitter taste. I guess from the zest. And it was a definite. I don't think I will ever be able to eat another orange blossom. But my kids like them. (Two out of three.) And just in case you think you may like them, here you go:
Orange Blossom Cookies
2/3 cup unsalted butter :: 3/4 cup sugar :: 1 egg :: 1/2 cup orange juice :: 2 cups flour :: 1/4 tsp baking soda :: 1/2 tsp salt :: 1 TBLS orange zest
Cream together butter and sugar, add egg and then orange juice. Mix dry ingredients, add to wet.
2 cups powdered sugar :: 1 egg white :: 1 TBLS orange zest :: 1 TBLS orange juice.
Drop by teaspoon. Bake on parchment paper. Bake @ 400˚ for 8-10 minutes.
Hope it doesn't take you six (or eight) to decide if you like them or not.
