Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 egg
2 teaspoons freshly grated orange peel
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 to 3 drops yellow food color
2 to 3 drops red food color
Large grain sugar

Directions

Combine 1 cup sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add sour cream, egg, orange peel, vanilla and orange extract; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat until well mixed.

Divide dough into thirds. Stir yellow food color into one-third of dough. Stir red food color into second third. Wrap each third in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (at least 1 hour).

Heat oven to 375°F. Spoon 1 to 1 1/2-inch pieces from half of each color of dough randomly onto lightly floured surface (keeping remaining dough refrigerated). Press colors together to form circle. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2 to 2 1/2-inch star cookie cutter. Repeat with remaining dough.

Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with large grain sugar. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. .
