Tangerine Butter Cookies

Brightly colored tangerine zest makes these cookies stand out from the rest. Cornmeal gives them a slightly crunchy but tender texture.

Tangerine Butter Cookies

Directions

  1. In a very large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the 1 1/2 cups sugar, the baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat until light and fluffy, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs, tangerine peel, vanilla, and orange extract until combined. Gradually beat in oil until smooth. Beat in cornmeal. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. If necessary, cover and chill for 30 to 60 minutes or until dough is easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the 1/2 cup sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll balls in sugar to coat. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Using a wooden skewer or toothpick, press an "X" into each ball of dough.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until tops are very lightly browned. While warm, lightly press again with wooden skewer to make deeper "X" indentations. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool. Makes 84 cookies.

I love these! I put the dough into a cookie press and make them like spritz cookies using the disc that looks like a clover leaf.

I got 51 cookies, instead of 84 --rolled them in 1-inch balls as suggested. :/

Too much oil & mine is it very grease, I did every thing right, but I don't know what happened! Any help? Please!

The dough was a little dry, so I added the juice of 1/2 of the tangerine. They came out very nice, with a unique flavor!

I would NOT use olive oil in this recipe...too much and too strong. Any good light vegetable based oil, organic if possible.
