I prepared these orange cookies for Christmas. For this reason I tried to make them beautifu painting the gaze on each of them and adding a small piece of candied citrus fruits. They look like jewels and they taste like heaven!
I made small(er) drops with the half quantity of dough. I got 100 jewes!
Dee, thanks a lot for your wonderful recipe!
