Hi!  I'm Noreen, wife, mother of two amazing, almost grown, daughters, content creator, cook, baker and sister in Christ. Welcome to my Kitchen!   I hope you stick around, enjoy the recipes and share them with those you love!


1 cup butter, softened
zest of 1 orange, about 1 tablespoon
contents of 6 chai spice tea bags
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
water if needed to reach desired consistency

Candied orange peel for garnish (optional)

Step by Step Instructions


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whip butter in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy.

Add orange zest and spice tea blend and beat to incorporate

Add flour and mix until well mixed.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness.

Cut out as desired.  I used a round cutter and was able to yield approximately 30 cookies.

Bake one sheet at a time for 10 to 12 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow the cookies to sit on the baking sheet for five minutes before removing to a rack to cool completely.

blend ingredients for glaze until smooth and creamy.

Dip cooled cookies, top down into the glaze and return to cooling rack.  Place a piece of candied orange peel in the center of each cookie and allow cookies to dry before storing.

Store cookies in an airtight container.  Cookies will soften within a couple of hours.  They will remain fresh for up to one week.
