Grandma Italian Orange Juice Wedding Tray Cookies

We always had these in the house when growing up, grandma loved to make cookies with orange juice and dunk them in her coffee...a great recipe! Whenever someone got married she would make a huge batch of these....always a hit!

3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened and cut into pieces
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
zest of half an orange (about 1/2 cup)
juice of half an orange
extra flour for rolling
Mix all ingredients together to form a ball. Roll into round balls or drop on a parchment lined cookie sheet. If dough is too sticky add a little flour. If you do the drop method they will flatten as they cook if the dough is sticky and you haven't added more flour to round them.  Bake at 350 till brown on the bottoms. After the cool, frost with a thin frosting made with confectionery sugar and water, sprinkle with non parels (tiny colored candies) and let dry.
