- Dawn of the Red Marmalade
- 2 large navel oranges
- 22oz. of Dawn of the Red IRA
- 4 1/2 cups sugar

Dawn of the Red Marmalade
Cut the oranges into quarters and slice thinly making sure to remove any seeds. Place the orange slices, sugar and beer in a large saucepan and bring to a simmer over low-medium/low heat. Boil the mixture for 2 1/2 hours, making sure it never reaches a boil. Stir consistently, every 10 minutes or so to remove bubbles and keep the liquid from burning.
After the liquid has reached a gel consistency, add in the lemon juice and let simmer for another half-hour, stirring continuously.
Let sit over night, covered and remove any large orange rind pieces. Spread on toast, glaze chicken, or continue on for a delicious cookie recipe!
Preheat oven to 375 degress. Mix the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Sift flour and salt together and add to the creamed mixture. Mix thoroughly.
Divide dough in half and roll the first half to 1/4" thickness on a floured surface. Use a small glass or a traditional Scandinavian Linzer cookie cutter to stamp out about 30 2" diameter cookies.
Take the remaining dough and roll to the same thickness. Cut out 2" diameter cookies and use a thimble or the Linzer cutter to create "wheels." Brush these cookies with egg white and sprinkle with a dash of sugar.
Place cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 6-8 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and let sit.
Once the cookies are cool, place 1/2 tsp. of Dawn of the Red Marmalade in the middle of the round cookies and cover with the "wheels" to create a sandwich. Enjoy!
