Loved the taste of these little buggers! With one exception, the recipe was followed down the line ~ I added 1/2 teaspoon of orange extract to the glaze! My zester gave me long, thin, curly strands of orange zest which I used on top! VERY, VERY TASTY! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
