Recipe Comments & Reviews

i made these and added extra flour. without it the cookies were flat. the flour was just what they needed to raise up real nice. and added orange zest to the glaze.
Easy and so tasty. I added orange zest to the frosting as well for a more orange flavor. These will now to part of my Christmas cookie gifts.
A nice "cakey" cookie. Not an overpowering orange flavor. Unfrosted is excellent with coffee!
wonderful moist ju yummyst
