      I just noticed I never rated these! Made them at a pre-Christmas family bake-off, and they were a hit. Not overly sweet, seemed to appeal more to adult tastes, but a perfect compliment to the standard sweet cookies in a holiday gift box.

      Wonderful and unusual treat! I also followed Starrynews suggestion and reduced sugar due to using dried cranberries. I made a few without the addition of pecans and cranberries - they were really good as well. Made for Sweet Traditions.

      OUTSTANDING TREATS, these, & definitely something I'll be making a number of times during the up-coming winter holidays! I took tips from Starry news & reduced the amount of sugar when I used dried cranberries, & then I also included a very rounded measure of the orange zest! Great, great recipe keeper, thanks to you!
