Candied Orange Cookies

Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2021

Candied Orange Cookies, oh my! These luscious jewels are filled with candied orange peel and vanilla chips. They’re not difficult to make either. They’re festive enough for any Christmas Cookie Exchange or other holiday gathering. Those partaking of these treats won’t be able to stay out of them. Literally.

Paradise Fruit Company sent me a big batch of assorted candied fruits to use up in recipes. I had a lot of fun coming up with recipes to use the many different selections they sent. I decided to use the candied orange peel in these delicious cookies. I used a regular Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe but tweaked it by using the candied orange peel and vanilla chips instead of chocolate chips. They turned out amazing.

I made over 4,000 cookies this year, plus cakes, pie, muffins, sweet breads and sweet rolls. I baked everything the month of October and the first week of November. Whew….it was exhausting. I’m so glad I can now enjoy the holiday season without having to do any more baking. (I know, I’ll be staying out of the kitchen, right?) Yes, I’ll be making stuff for Thanksgiving, but casseroles have always been my favorite thing to make. Besides all those side dishes have been made so many times before I don’t even have to use a recipe (nor take pictures)!

Candied Orange Cookies are delightful for this year’s holiday baking. Take them to office parties, Christmas Cookie Exchanges, or serve them for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Day gatherings. Don’t plan on bringing any cookies home though. Anyone with a sweet tooth will devour these fabulous cookies.
