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.

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