    nranger7's Note:

    From a package of Land O Lakes butter. Don't let the orange juice throw you! I just made Orange Drop Cookies (Orange Drop Cookies) which also uses orange juice and they were some of the best cookies I've ever made - despite the fact that I don't like fruit. I have yet to try this recipe, but it's on my list...

      We saw this recipe in a Land o Lakes ad and my husband asked me to try them. He liked the ones best that I made more crispy. He also thought there was too much "flour" taste. We are still on the hunt for the perfect butter cookie recipe.
