This is one of my Mom's favorite cookies. No shortening required! Super easy, chock full of orange flavor, and not too sweet!

  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Orange Glaze:

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 tsp. water


Beat sugar and egg 3 minutes in a bowl. Stir in flour, oranges, and nuts. Spread in greased 8x8 inch pan. Bake in 350 degree F oven 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

While baking, make your glaze. Stir all of glaze mixture together until smooth.

These sound really great. I think I might try to make them with satsumas or clementines. That seems like one would be about 2/3 of an orange.

(That was 2/3 of an orange, not 2/3 cup. IF using a small orange, you could use the entire orange.)

Yes, I have used tangerines also and they are very good, as well. The more fruit you use in the recipe the more moist the bars will be. I have varied this recipe and they are always good. :)
