Vintage Cookie Recipes: Orange GumDrop Cookies

Here is my Grandma Mildred's recipe for Orange Gumdrop Cookies. I looked all over on the internet and combed through lots of my cook books and couldn't find the exact recipe. I hadn't made these for a long time. I often buy the orange slice candy but someone always gets into them before I get the cookies made.
Check out Twisted Candy for a few vintage cookie recipes. I am going to try out the Date pinwheel cookies. I hope they are like the ones I remember.
