Orange Zest Cookies

I didn't know what kind of cookies I wanted to make but while clearing out my inbox I found this recipe...yum!


INGREDIENTS:
1 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup sour cream
2 eggs
3 tablespoons grated orange
zest
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup orange juice

1/4 cup margarine, melted
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon grated orange
zest
3 tablespoons orange juice
DIRECTIONS:
1.Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
2.In a medium bowl, cream together the margarine, sugar and sour cream until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 3 tablespoons orange zest. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the sugar mixture alternately with 2/3 cup orange juice. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
3.Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. In a small bowl, stir together the melted margarine, confectioners' sugar and 1 tablespoon orange zest. Mix remaining orange juice in 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Spread over cooled cookies.
