- Orange Glaze Icing:
- 1-1/2 cups (350 ml) sifted confectioners sugar
- 2 tbsp (30 ml) strained orange juice
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees (200 C.).
- Cream the butter or the margarine until it is the consistency of mayonnaise.
- Beat in the white sugar and the brown sugar gradually.
- Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
- Add in the vanilla.
- Mix together the flour, salt and baking soda and then sift.
- Add the flour mixture into the creamed butter mixture alternately with the catsup (ketchup).
- Stir in the raisins and the walnuts.
- Drop the cookie batter by rounded measuring tspfuls onto the greased cookie baking sheets.
- Space each dropped cookie batter circle 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in a preheated oven at 375 degrees (200 C.) or until the edges of the cookies are browned and will spring back when touched with a finger.
- Combine the confectioners sugar and the orange juice together and beat until the mixture is smooth.
- Add a little more orange juice if the glaze is not thin enough to be transparent.
- Spread the glaze on the cookies while they are hot.
- Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before removing the cookies to wire racks for the cookies to cool completely.
- Personal Cooking Notes: Can use golden raisins istead of the dark raisns. Can also use shortening instead of butter or margarine. Can also bake the cookies from 8 to 10 minutes. Can also eat the cookies plain and not use the orange glaze icing on the cookies. This recipe came from Parade's Test Kitchen. Parade Magazine is a newspaper insert in the Sunday newspaper.
