Although I would like to see a little more of an orange flavor, these are really very good. My DD thought they tasted more like lemon crisps than orange. Next time I may try using more orange zest. I think that might give more flavor without diluting the dough. Thanks, Sherrybeth for this new addition to our holiday cookie tray.
