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!

Took these to the DS's Christmas party were they were really enjoyed. I did get 55 cookies from the mix though. Chilled for 3 hours and I had to work the dough in small amounts to smooth and make it pliable but otherwise came up well. Baked at 190C fan forced oven for 6 minutes. Thank you Evie*.

Great recipe! However, 2 hours of chilling and mine was still soft like chocolate chip cookie dough. Due to a time constraint I had to cook it anyway, so I did drops instead of rolling it out and it worked out fine. Due to the previous mention of lack of orange taste, I added the zest of half of an orange and that helped a LOT :) Thanks <3

I made these cookies and was a bit disappointed that they didn't have MORE orange flavor as I was sort of expecting. They kind of tasted more like a sugar cookie. But I frosted them with my orange sugar glaze (Orange Sugar Glaze). It complimented the orange sugar glaze beautifully. Thank you for posting this recipe.

I must confess, I've had this recipe since last year...we ran out of baking time!! Well this year this one was the first to be made, and boy am I glad - they are terrific, and easy to make. The only comment I have being a novice at this type of cookie (rollout & cut) is that if your kitchen gets very hot work quickly with the chilled dough otherwise it gets difficult to transfer to the cookie sheet and needs to be refrigerated again! YUMMY!! These are keepers!
