How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg, orange zest and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed just until mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Line large tray with waxed paper. Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into 24 balls. Place onto prepared tray. Cover; refrigerate.

  3. STEP 3

    Roll remaining dough into 6 1/2-inch log. Flatten sides to form triangle. Wrap in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 375ºF.

  5. STEP 5

    Trim ends of log, if necessary. Cut log into 24 (1/4-inch) triangle slices. Place triangle slices, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Place 1 ball of dough over a point of triangle for head; flatten slightly. Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let stand 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

  6. STEP 6

    Melt candy coating according to package directions. Place waxed paper onto flat surface. Working with 1 cookie at a time, turn cookie bottom-side up. Dip curved side of 2 pretzels into melted candy coating. Attach to back side of cookie to form wings. Place onto waxed paper. Repeat with remaining cookies. Let stand until coating is set.

  7. STEP 7

    Reheat coating, if necessary. Dip top of head and bottom of skirt into coating; decorate as desired. Let stand until coating is set. Use white decorator icing to attach pearls for necklace and halo, if desired.

- Be careful not to overheat candy coating or it will burn and become lumpy.

Tip #4

- For mess free decorating, have all your decorator sugars and sprinkles in small bowl so you can hold cookies over bowls and decorate as desired.
