Orange cream cheese cookies are a cake like cookie perfect for citrus lovers. Naturally flavored with the perfect amount of fresh orange and topped with an easy orange cookie glaze, they're so easy to eat and share!
Drop the cookies in tablespoons on the baking sheets and bake 10-13 minutes, rotating the pans once halfway through baking. The cookies won't really change color, but you'll notice a very light golden tint around the bottom edge. You can also pick one up to check color.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest on the pan 2 minutes before transferring to a rack set over parchment to cool.
Once the cookies are cool, mix together the glaze ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Start with 2 tablespoons of water and add more as needed to create a smooth glaze. Dunk the tops of the cookies in one at a time, gently shake off the excess, then return the cookie to the cooling rack so the icing can set.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to one week.
