Capture the scent of an old-fashioned Christmas in a modern-day cookie. Sweet and citrusy orange blended with spicy clove make the perfect holiday treat, especially when shaped using your favorite cookie cutters.
In medium bowl, combine flour, cloves, baking soda and salt.
In large bowl, beat brown sugar and orange zest on medium speed for 1 minute. Add butter and beat on low speed until light and fluffy. Add egg and orange extract; beat until well combined. Add flour mixture 1 cup at a time, scraping bottom and sides of bowl and beating well after each addition. Divide dough into 2 disks. Do not chill.
On floured surface, roll each disc into a circle approximately 1/8 in. thick. Cut using 3 in. cookie cutter and place on cookie pan. Sprinkle with Sparkling Sugar. Reroll dough as necessary.
Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges of cookies are lightly darkened and firm to the touch. Cool cookies on pan on cooling grid 3 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on grid.
