These are terrific, but you definitely need to refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes before rolling into balls and baking. When each batch goes into the over, store dough in frige again. Otherwise, it's too sticky to work with. Also - using orange juice instead of the water really brings out the spice flavors.
