In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Beat in milk and 6 tablespoons orange mixture. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture until blended. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls two inches apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-13 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.


For frosting, in a mixing bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, butter and enough of the remaining orange mixture to achieve spreading consistency. Frost cookies.
