I was recently in "not my usual" grocery store and noticed that their cake mix was on sale. Since I love a bargain, I bought several boxes in a variety of flavors. I've been looking at that row of cake mixes in my pantry and decided today that I would pull one out and use it for a batch of cookies. I'm spinning this recipe off my Lemon Cookie recipe, basically the same type of cookie, different flavor.
1 box (18.25 ounces) orange cake mix
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed
About 3/4 cup powdered sugar
In a large bowl, combine the dry cake mix, egg, orange juice, and orange zest. Mixture will be crumbly. Fold in the Cool Whip until well combined. Batter will be sticky; refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan by lining with parchment paper. Scoop the batter out by small spoonfuls and roll in powdered sugar. Place on prepared pan. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until lightly browned.
These Orange Cookies turned out very much like their Lemon "sisters", so if you like the flavor of orange you might want to give these cookies a try.
