    Iced Butter Cookies
    For the Cookie:
    1 cup butter, softened
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg
    2 cup all-purpose flour
    2 tbs orange juice
    1 tbs vanilla
    1 tsp baking powder
    For the Frosting:
    3 cup powdered sugar

    1/3 cup butter, softened
    1 tsp vanilla

Reduce speed to low and beat until well mixed. Divide dough into thirds. Wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm, 2 to 3 hrs. Heat oven to 400F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8 to 1/4" thickness. Cut with 2" cookie cutters. Place 1" apart on un-greased cookie sheets. Bake for 6-10 min or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
