Very good. I only got 2 dozen out of this recipe and froze 1 dozen for Xmas. But will make again even if it's not Xmas.

I thought these were yummy, like an orange snickerdoodle, but neither DH nor DD was crazy about them. I used orange sugar for a halloween theme.

Although I had to make a couple of changes, these were wonderful cookies, and part of my cookie boxes mailed to friends and relatives. I had no shortening, so used margarine (and since it is salted, omitted the salt from the recipe). My test cookie didn't have quite enough spice taste for me, so I added 2 t. cinnamon and 1/2 t allspice to the batter. (My cinnamon may not have been fresh enough). Very good recipe, thank you very much! -K

These are outstanding! I used 1/4 tsp salt instead of a half, but I can't imagine a half tsp. would be bad. Terrific flavor, crunchy, yummy stuff.

Wow! These cookies are just wonderful! Perfect cinnamon-sugar flavour with a zesty orange taste that is just right - it doesn't overpower the cookie! I made this batch to make Christmas gift baskets, but I'll be making another for myself!! Thanks for a wonderful recipe :o)

This is a great idea for cookies, but for some reason mine came out tasting very salty. I had to throw them away. It was probably the Crisco. Well, I'll use your idea but with my trusty BHG snickerdoodle recipe.

These are amazing! Yummy little, not toooo sweet cookies with a slight buttery crisp to the edges. Word of advice though--make sure you don't get any of the pith in your orange zest, as there's not enough sugar in the recipe to cancel that bitterness. Great addition to balance the gooey-ness of other cookies. Thanks!

Excellent cookie! Not too sweet, and the hint of orange was outstanding! I ran out of cinnamon so I used a little bit of nutmeg and the results were very good. I'll try them again with the cinnamon but I'm sure they will be just as good as these !
