Ingredients

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder 

1/4 teaspoon salt 

1 small sprig fresh rosemary, finely chopped 

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature 

1 cup granulated sugar 

1 large egg 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 orange, finely zested and juice reserved 

1 orange, finely zested and juice reserved

2 cups confectioners' sugar 

Directions

  1. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and rosemary in a large bowl.
  2. Cream the butter and granulated sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the egg, vanilla and orange zest and mix to combine. Add the flour mixture and mix until thoroughly combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
  4. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls (about 1 tablespoon each) and place 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake until just golden at the edges, about 15 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, mix together the confectioners' sugar and reserved orange juice in a medium bowl and set aside.
  6. Remove the cookies from the oven and let cool on the baking sheets about 5 minutes, then top each with about a teaspoon of the orange glaze.
