Big Brother's Favorite

This is Big Brother's favorite cookie. I make sugar cookies a lot, and I'm not patient enough to refrigerate, roll, cut, cool, and frost all fancy like. So I invented a drop sugar cookie that I usually frost with jazzed up store bought frosting. Here is my recipe:

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. orange extract
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Bake at 350 for 8-10 min.

1 can whipped butter cream
orange food coloring
2 tsp. orange extract

(at Christmas time I make this cookie, but substitute peppermint extract for orange, then I sprinkle crushed up candy canes on the tops.)
