These turned out perfectly. I added a small amount of orange zest (about 1 tsp.) to the dough. The directions say to take 1 teaspoon of dough and roll out but we used 1 tablespoon and ended up with 2 dozen cookies. They tasted great with coffee, too! Reviewed for Veg Tag/April. PS When shaping the dough, handle it as little as possible. The more it's handled, the more difficult it is to shape.
