Here are some images and the recipe for my own personal take on the Nilla cookie that I grew up with and am soo darned fond of.

Orange Nillas

Orange Nillas


4 Tbsp Milk
1 c. Butter
1 c. Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 c. Cornmeal
1 c. AP Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
Zest of Whole orange, Juice of half
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Salt

Cream the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, combining well after each addition. Next, incorporate the vanilla and orange zest. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Begin to add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk and orange juice, starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix well.

Spoon onto a parchment lined cookie sheet by teaspoonfuls. These babies will spread like crazy, so give them space. Bake in an oven at 375 for about 8-10 minutes or until the edges are browned. Let them cool completely and enjoy with tea or milk.
