- In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in orange juice concentrate and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a 3-in. star shaped cookie cutter dipped in flour. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 7-8 minutes or until edges are firm. Remove to wire racks to cool.
- For frosting, combine confectioners' sugar, butter, orange juice concentrate, vanilla and enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Tint with food coloring if desired. Frost cookies; sprinkle with colored sugar if desired.

These are now my favorite sugar cookies... with just a hint of orange flavor in them, they have a unique and delicious taste. They stay soft, and are perfect for Christmas cutouts! YUM-O!
