Icebox Cookies are also known as Refrigerator Cookies and Slice-and-Bake Cookies. Making Icebox Cookie dough is not that different from making any other cookie dough. The day before, begin by mixing the dry ingredients (2 cups of flour, 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and baking powder) in a large bowl. In another bowl, cream 3/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup each granulated and powdered sugar. For this recipe, mix in the zest of 1 orange, 2 tablespoons orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon orange extract. Mix completely to form a stiff and slightly greasy ball of dough.
