Egg Biscuits

egg biscuit

“Italian Egg Biscuits are such a nice cookie, not too sweet on the inside but always frosted on top. Subtle flavorings vary for inside the dough, just plain, or lemon or orange.  This recipe has a hint of orange in the dough, but not in the frosting, so the orange taste is very slight. 

Some recipes roll them into balls, but I prefer to make a log and then twirl it into a circle to get a cookie in layers, which I think is so much better.

It is a very easy cookie to make. It is common to see the dough colors and candy sprinkles changed for the holidays throughout the year.     Enjoy!”

Servings:  48      Bake Time:  10 minutes


5 cups flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup sugar

1 cup oil

4 eggs

½ cup orange juice

2 tablespoons orange rind

2 ½ cups confectioner’s sugar

2 tablespoons water

Colored sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Grease or spray cookie sheets.
  3. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together to form a dough.  It will be sticky.
  4. Flour your hands and take a small walnut-sized piece of dough and shape it into a four-inch log.
  5. Twirl the log into a circle and place on prepared cookie sheet two inches apart.  The cookies increase in size in the oven.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes or until light brown on the bottom.  Do not over bake.
  7. Immediately remove cookies to a wire rack to cool.
  8. In a small bowl combine the confectioner’s sugar and water.  Adjust the water to the thickness you want for the frosting.
  9.  Decorate the cookies with candy sprinkles.
  10. Let frosted cookies dry for 30 minutes on a wire rack.
  11. Store cookies in a single layer in a covered pan or tin on the counter. It is better not to stack the cookies while in storage for a nicer presentation when you want to use them. Although you can stack them for a short while for your presentation.  Frosted cookies will stick to each other if stacked for a long time.
