READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by llk2day

Simple to make and really good! This wafer thin cookie is both crispy and a bit chewy, with just a hint of orange rind flavor. They disappear very quickly I might add, leaving you craving more! Unknown where it originally came from.

Excellant! My family loved these cookies. According to them The orange zest made this totaly different from what I use to make. A must make again for them.
