These were like a cross between a candy and a cookie. Next time I'm going to make smaller cookies, they are very rich and very sweet. I think these would be great for Christmas. I was trying to use up our leftover orange slices from Halloween. I followed the recipe, but I think a bit of water was forgotten. I added 3-4 tablespoons of water and that worked great. Orange juice might be good too.
