  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 3 tbsp grated orange zest
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tbsp grated orange zest
  • 3 tbsp orange juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the margarine, sugar and sour cream until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 3 tablespoons orange zest. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the sugar mixture alternately with 2/3 cup orange juice. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
