Welcome spring by creating a field of flower cookies.
Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 36 mini muffin pan cups lightly with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.
Combine butter, sugar and egg in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add orange juice and vanilla. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Shape dough into 36 (about 1 1/4-inch) balls. Roll in decorator sugars. Place into prepared muffin pan cups. Refrigerate 10 minutes or until firm.
Cut each ball almost in half, using kitchen scissors (do not cut all the way through). Cut each half into 3 petals.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set in center and tips are just beginning to brown. Cool 5 minutes in muffin cups; remove to cooling rack.
Attach jelly beans to centers of cookies with small amount of icing, if desired.

As autumn rolls around, I love making apple desserts. I’ve written a couple of times about my hunt for the best apple crisp recipe and how I’m always looking for ways to utilize the crop of apples in our yard. While I do have a couple of stand-by recipes, it’s always nice to try a new spin.
