Directions

Add flour and salt; beat at low speed until just combined. Divide dough in half. Wrap each half in plastic food wrap; flatten slightly. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

  3. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch flower-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool completely.
  4. Combine powdered sugar and butter in small bowl. Beat at medium speed 2-3 minutes, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough orange juice for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled cookies. Decorate with sugars, if desired. .
