    2                    Well beaten Eggs
      1/2   c            Fresh Orange Juice

      3/4   c            Sour milk or Buttermilk
                         -----ICING-----
      1/2   c            Butter
    4       c            Powdered Sugar
      1/3   c            Evaporated Milk
    1       t            Vanilla
    2       tb           Grated Orange Rind
 
   Cream shortening and sugar.  Add eggs, orange juice, rinds, vanilla and
   sour milk.  Mix well.  Add all dry ingredients which have been sifted (NOT!
   I'm lazy) together.  Blend everything together well.  Optional - one cup of
   nuts. Drop by teaspoon on greased cookie sheet, (I used teflon cookie sheet
   ~ no greasing) Bake at 350% for 5 to 8 minutes.
   
   ICING: Beat it all together and slap on the VERY COOLED DOWN cookies.
   
   This makes a cake like cookie just exploding with orange flavor
