      Scrumptious! I made these for Christmas and because I had so many chocolatey cookies I skipped the chocolate on these. These cookies are so good! They taste like orange shortbread!

      What a great versatile cookie recipe Lauralie. Soo good, just perfect for my picky dh & I. His batch was made without nuts and chocolate, I did add some flaked coconut. My batch was made exactly as written. Both versions were excellent, tender, buttery and oh so flavorful. Thanks so much for sharing this treat. :)

      These are melt-in-your-mouth delicious...tender...buttery...yum!I am sure they would go over the top with the tops dipped in chocolate; alas, I am making them for my non-chocolate-liking son. I did not have orange extract, so I used 1 tablespoon zest, and squeezed a little (1-2 tsp.) fresh orange juice into the batter. This is a great recipe and a wonderful addition to our Christmas baking!
