1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup plus 3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed orange juice, divided
2 tablespoons finely grated orange zest, divided
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
DirectionsPreheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar until creamy. Add 1 cup orange juice and 1 teaspoon orange zest; mix well.
