Made for Comfort Cafe Summer 2009. These are excellent cookies. Love the great orange flavor that the orange juice gives these. Will definitely make these again. Thanks for posting this recipe Queen!

Thanks for a great recipe! The only change I made was to use a rounded teaspoon of zest, 'cause I'm a big fan of that particular ingredient! Otherwise, I did as directed & my cookies were a big hit! Definitely something to make again! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup cooking game]
