In bowl, beat butter with sugar until light; beat in eggs, Grand Marnier and orange rind. Add flour and candied peel; mix together just until combined.

Using piping bag fitted with 1/2-inch (1 cm) plain tip or sealable plastic bag with corner tip cut off, pipe mixture into 1-inch (2.5 cm) rounds, 1-1/2 inches (4 cm) apart, onto parchment paper–lined baking sheets; refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until set, puffed and golden on edges, 6 to 8 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack. (Make-ahead: Store layered between waxed paper in airtight container for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)

In small microwaveable bowl, microwave marmalade to melt; press through fine strainer. Brush over cookies; let stand for 15 minutes.

Icing: In bowl, mix together icing sugar, orange juice and Grand Marnier; spread over cookies. Top each with piece of orange peel. Let stand until set, about 2 hours.
