My Obsession Lately

These simple but delicious peanut butter chocolate oatmeal no bakes have been my obsession lately. I was reminded of them by my sister who made them once when we were over for dinner. Since then I decided they're the fasted way to satisfy my continuous sweet tooth :) I'll have to post the recipe later, can't find it right now sorry!

Cort, here is the recipe for those little orange blossoms that Grandma used to make. Thought you might like it.


* 2 cups white sugar
* 1 cup shortening
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup sour cream
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 5 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 3/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
* 2 tablespoons grated orange zest

* 1 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
* 6 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
* 3 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 1/2 cups butter, melted
* 4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar


1. Cream white sugar and shortening; add eggs and stir. Add sour cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla; stir and set aside. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add little by little to the creamed mixture and stir well. Add 3/4 cup orange juice concentrate, and 2 tablespoons orange zest. Drop onto greased cookie sheets by teaspoonfuls.
2. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 10 minutes. Frost cookies when they are cool.
3. To Make Frosting: Mix together 1/2 teaspoon orange zest, 2 Tablespoons of the thawed orange juice concentrate, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 4 Tablespoons of melted butter, 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar or enough to make frosting of spreading consistency.
