Number of Servings: 80

Ingredients

    3 sticks margarine, softened
    2 cups granulated Sugar
    6 tbsp AllWhites Eggs Whites
    .75 tsp orange extract
    1.25 tsp vanilla extract
    4 cups AP flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    3 tbsp orange juice
    2 cups confectioner’s sugar

Tips

You can also add a cup of chopped walnuts


Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla and carrots. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly golden. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the glaze, put 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar into a medium bowl. Grate the rind of the orange into the bowl with the sugar. Squeeze in enough juice from the orange to form a thin but spreadable consistency. Mix until smooth. If necessary, stir in more confectioners' sugar. Spread onto the cooled cookies. Store in an airtight container.
