This comes from Canadian Living Test Kitchen and was found on I plan on making these tomorrow, but wanted to share the recipe with you. Notes: I added the 1 tsp. orange extract to the recipe as I truly enjoy the orange flavor! You may freeze the dough up to 1 month. Chill time is not included in prep time.
