Uniquely delicious cookie! All my friends remarked with pleasure upon the flavor, but none could guess the spice or the orange or molasses ingredients. This recipe definitely joins my select collection of The Cookie Lady's Favorites. I bake cookies every Saturday always using Land o' Lakes butter for friends and for the office. Everyone calls me The Cookie Lady. From my years of cookie-baking, I know that good-tasting butter is essential to good-tasting cookies and Land o' Lakes is just the best-tasting butter available. I am very happy to have learned of Land 'o Lakes website and recipe treasury from the lovely television commercial about families sharing cookie time together. Beautiful message to American families. Thank you, Land o' Lakes! Veronica, The Cookie Lady
