Ingredients
Dough:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest (about half of 1 orange)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare 2 large baking sheets; lightly grease with shortening, or line with parchment paper, or line with a non-stick baking mat.
Dough:
  1. In a large bowl of an electric mixer, combine butter and sugar; cream together until mixture appears light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula so the mixture blends evenly. Add eggs, orange zest, and orange juice; beat until thoroughly mixed. Add flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt; stir until well mixed. Add oats, stir until mixed.
  2. Bake: Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until cookies are set and the edges are just barely browned. Remove cookies from baking sheets with a metal spatula and place on a wire cooling rack to cool. Tip: An ice cream scoop is ideal for making uniform-sized cookies.
