These cookies are light and tasty and not to sweet....
I made these the taste was great I even added extra OJ and the texture was great
This recipe is almost identical to my Grandmother's with the exception that she did not have baking powder in her's. Instead she had 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. This was always her most requested cookie. Give that a try maybe it will work out better for you.
I'm not sure what went wrong but these were.. well.. bad. They tasted like shortening and flour. I added an additional tbsp of orange zest to no avail. I even used fresh squeezed orange juice from wonderfully tasty oranges. If I attempt these again, I'll use butter instead of shortening and some orange extract for added flavor. Maybe I did something wrong? I don't know - I'm definitely not an expert cook but I usually can follow a recipe.
