The famous Orange Cookies

My Zia Chuza makes these and they are a hit, they are so lovely, I have been having one a day since I left the sunny shores of Toronto. Yum!

1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 cup of milk
3 eggs
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup Crisco shortening (made with vegetable oil)
5 Tsp. baking powder
3 1/2 - 4 cups all purpose flour

Mix Crisco and sugar together with a fork
Add 1 egg at a time and continue beating
Add milk, orange juice and baking powder
Blend until smooth
Take one teaspoon of dough and roll into icing sugar. Press 1/2 a piece almond or colour candied sugar (green or red) on each cookie
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes
Broil for a few minutes until golden brown

Makes about 36 cookies.
