Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Your family will love these gently spiced and orange-flavored cookies.
Combine sugar and butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg yolk, molasses and orange juice; continue beating until well mixed. Add all remaining ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough in half; wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or overnight until firm.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Roll out dough, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch cookie cutters. Place 1-inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Decorate as desired.

Very disappointed in this recipe. I didn't want too spicy of a coookie because these were for a classrrom party but beyond butter, sugar, and a hint of cinnamon these were unimpressive. Also, they looked great while baking then flattened out more than I expected and were very greasy. I will not make this recipe again.
Excellent recipe! My four year old and I made these together and they roll out beautifully. Taste is amazing. I used 2 T. molasses but otherwise followed recipe exactly. We sprinkled colored sugar on before we baked them. 10-11 minutes in an electric oven. thank you for the great recipe!

Caramel and cake. The subtle sweetness of the pound cake combined with the browned butter and toasty sugar flavor in the caramel sauce icing creates a dessert well worth the time to make it.
