Microwave in 30 second intervals until butter is soft, not melted
PUT all the ingredients into a mixing bowl, mix until well blended.
DROP cookie dough onto baking sheets
NOTE: Leave space between the cookies, they will expand as they cook
Typically I get about 12 cookies to fit per sheet
(About 2 tablespoons worth - or about a 1" ball)

BAKE For 12 to 14 minutes
REMOVE COOKIES FROM OVEN and let cool 10 minutes.
Store cookies in an airtight container. They should keep several days :)

Add More Orange Juice 1 teaspoon at a time until the icing is just barely thick enough so you can pour it.
Pour Icing over cookies and enjoy!
If using Milk, be sure to refrigerate cookies!
