    Scoutie's Note:

    A few things I might try: I would use parchment paper to line the cookie sheets.Check on the temperature, they might need at least 12 minutes. If using the candied orange peel, finely chop it.Let dough come to room temp before baking. From Food Network. Posted for ZWT 6

      My DD mixed the ingredients for these and I noticed when they were already in the oven that the baking soda was on the "ingredients not used yet" side. Oops.......... they did however turn out lovely. They needed 11 minutes baking time, bottoms were nice and golden and they had a nice chewy middle.
