Ingredients

  • 3 cups unbleached organic flour
  • 2 cups granulated cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 finely grated orange peels
  • 1 cup Blood Orange Olive Oil
  • 2 large room-temperature eggs, whisked
  • 2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • powdered sugar for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat over to 350F.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large mixing bowl, add the sugar, Blood Orange Olive Oil, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and eggs. Beat on medium speed until thick and creamy, about 3 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour and remaining dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in three additions beating in between additions until no dry spots remain.
  4. Pipe the cookie dough using a pastry bag fitted with a star shaped pastry, portioning approximately two teaspoons of dough per cookie, onto a parchment lined cookie sheet pan. Alternatively, use two spoons to drop batter onto the cookie sheet.
  5. Bake in the center of the oven for 10 minutes at 3500 F. Increase the heat to 4250 F and bake for an additional 2 minutes to aid in creating a golden brown exterior.
  6. Remove the cookies to a rack to cool. Repeat above steps with the remainder of the dough. When cookies are fully cooled, dust with powdered sugar.
