Bake the Book: Orange-Infused Rounds
As our month-long ode to cookies has gone on, it seems that the cookie recipes that we've been sharing have become increasingly involved, with complicated techniques, hours of chilling, and a whole slew of dishes to clean after. Don't get me wrong, all of the cookies we've featured have been nothing short of delicious, but during these pre-holiday crunch days we need simple, easy recipes in our back pockets.
These Orange-Infused Rounds from Fany Gerson's My Sweet Mexico have that wonderful chewy quality of a great sugar cookie with just the right amount of warmth from orange zest and cinnamon. They are comforting, both to bake and to eat.
The recipe calls for the dough to be formed into little rings, but in the spirit of keeping things simple, I opted to roll out the dough and cut out little rounds with a cookie cutter. Simple, sweet, and and happily baked in hardly anytime at all, these Orange-Infused Rounds are the perfect baking project for this time of year.
