Mandarin Orange Cookies

Lately I have been on a citrus kick.
I love the tangy, sweet, tart flavor
from all the citrus fruit.
I wanted to come up with a cookie
you could make by using canned fruit.
These Mandarin Orange Cookies
are sure to become a favorite!

Mandarin Orange Cookies
1(11oz.) Mandarin Orange's~ blended
1 C. Butter Flavor Shortening
2 C. Sugar
1 C. Milk
4 C. Flour
2 tsp. Orange zest
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Orange Extract

Orange Citrus Icing
6 C. Powdered Sugar
2 tsp. Butter~ melted
1 tsp. Orange Extract
2 tsp. Lemon Juice

Preheat oven to 350
Cream together shortening and sugar
until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Add in the mandarin puree and milk, mix.
 Add in remaining ingredients.
Drop by spoonfuls onto a well greased
baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
While cookies are baking beat together
all the icing ingredients until smooth.
 Make sure you let the cookies cool
on rack completely before "dipping"
each cooking into the icing.
Store in an air tight container, with
wax paper between layers.
