  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg

For Coating

  • 11/2 – cups granulated sugar
  • 11/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon 


Preheat oven to 365 degrees.

2. In a large mixing bowl combine butter, sugar, egg, orange juice, and vanilla. Beat at medium speed, scraping until the mixture is smooth.
