      Tasty, especially with a powdered-sugar icing. I doubled the recipe but only added 4 cups (instead of 5) of flour. The cookies were still a little floury, even. I also used a couple squirts of lemon juice instead and orange and it worked just great.

      I liked the hint of orange juice in the batter. I took one person's suggestion of putting the orange sugar glaze on it, but I added some orange zest into the glaze to give it more of a punch of flavor

      Excellent recipe Evie! I did chill for an extra hour, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Delicious subtle flavour, I would not change a thing. My 6 year old and I had a great time decorating these like Christmas Trees, and we supplied her grade one class with treats for a party. This will go into my regular Christmas tray rotation. Thanks for posting!
