      I'm giving these cookies 4 stars because I did omit a few things from the recipe. But, I will say I did have some problems with the recipe. First of all they're really crumbly to work with. I had to add a bit more butter to the mix to get the dough to hold together enough to roll into balls. I used Splenda sugars (both brown and white) and omitted the orange zest. I also chose not to drizzle the powdered sugar glaze and used Smuckers Low-Sugar Raspberry Jam. Where I made a mistake was not looking at the serving size. I made 15 walnut size cookies and should have made them a touch bigger as I see your recipe states 12. All in all these have pretty good taste, and of course because they are lighted up, practically guilt-free~ Made for PhotoTag~
