Orange Slice Cookies

These are really easy and different and No Fat (unless you ice them, I like them plain).
A recipe from the Arcadia Methodist Church cookbook from the fifties. Contributed by Mrs. Gladys Newton, one of the fabulous Methodist Women I remember from that church.

2 eggs, beaten
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour, sifted with 1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup finely cut nuts
3/4 cup orange slice candy (cut in slivers, I use the scissors dipped in cold water to cut)

Mix well together, spread out on greased cookie sheet (I use 9 X 12 , as they spread as they start to bake, a larger pan makes them too thin.) Bake 400 degrees for about 12 minutes or until nice and brown. Cut in bars and ice with 1 Tbsp. butter, 2 Tbsp. orange juice and powdered sugar to spread.

Happy Friday everyone.
