On a recent visit to California my grandmother gave me this gem of a recipe, it was one her mother used to make. Though it seems simple it is surprisingly delicious and packs a great punch from all the orange zest. —bronxbaker
12 small pieces
Softened butter (unsalted)
1 3/4 cups
ground orange, using a grinder attachment on a mixer would probably work, as would a food processor. I used a hand grinder the first time around and finely minced the zest and pith the second time. I do not recommend using a blender.
ground raisins, see above.
