Orange Glazed Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

For cookies:
½ tsp. The Spice Hunter Orange Peel
½ tsp. orange juice
1 cup butter, softened
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. The Spice Hunter Pure Vanilla Extract
2 ¼ cups flour, sifted
¼ tsp. salt

for glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. orange juice, plus more as needed

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350°;F. In a very small dish combine orange peel and orange juice, set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese together, add sugar, egg yolk and vanilla and continue beating until fluffy. Add orange peel mixture, then stir in flour and salt. Use a cookie press to form cookies or drop by small spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until light golden brown on edges. While cookies are cooling, prepare glaze by mixing a tablespoon of orange juice into powdered sugar. Add just enough juice to make a thick, but smooth glaze. Once cookies are cooled, drizzle glaze over top.
