    CulinaryQueen's Note:

    From the 1963 Betty Crocker Cooky Book. These are a cake-like cookie. For variety, add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts, raisins or chocolate chips. I used chocolate chips because I enjoy the taste of chocolate and orange together.

      These were lovely. Know that they are soft and cake-like but I found this was a good thing for us. I made half with chocolate chips, and the other I left plain but then frosted with a vanilla icing. My icing was about 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1T butter, 1T milk and 1tsp vanilla, beaten until airy and fluffy (add more powdered sugar if it is too runny). With the orange cookies it was like a cookie creamsicle. Wow. I honestly can't tell you which way was better. Mind you these cookies aren't terribly sugary so they might need the icing or chocolate for some folks. Definitely worth trying. Thanks for the post!

      We have an abundance of oranges off our tree and I was looking for a yummy recipe. Found it! My husband and son were doubtful when they saw me making orange cookies with chocolate chips. They were pleasantly surprised at how good these cookies are...delicious!

      How wonderful are these!?!?! Wow! I love the flavour of these! Instead of just grated zest, I did do some short little strips as well to add a bit of bite here and there. I love it. I also added in chocolate chips. How could I resist? These are the perfect cookie for "tea time". Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2008
