ORANGE SLICE COOKIES

This recipe is from my Capitol Cookies cookbook that features a recipe from each of our state capitols. This recipe is from Montgomery, Alabama.

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon soda
1 pound orange slice candy
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup shortening
2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Cream sugar, shortening, and eggs until light and fluffy. Sift the 2 cups of flour with the soda and salt.  Blend into the creamed mixture. Dice orange slice candy. Mix with 1/2 cup flour and add to the first mixture.  Stir in coconut, chopped nuts, and oats.  Roll into 1-inch balls.  Place on a greased cookie sheet and press with a fork.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.  Makes 6 dozen.

Note: When dicing candy, dip kitchen shears in powdered sugar frequently.
