This recipe is so easy to make and tastes great! I made them for work and got raves from everyone. I felt guilty because they were so easy.

These are very easy to make. They make a very soft, almost cake-like cookie. I did not use the almond extract, I used no extract because boxed mixes tend to already have a lot of vanilla in them anyway. I used a fat free muffin mix by mistake, but it still came out great. For the filling, I'd add orange zest to make it more orangy.
