    My sister Sally is an excellent cook and this shortbread is one of my favorite things to bake during the holidays. It smells fantastic and tastes wonderful with a hot cup of coffee.

      WOWZERS!!! This is an unbelievably FANTASTIC recipe! This is a mix of some of my favorite things...shortbread (butter), orange, spice and gingerbread. It's slightly chewy and the smell and flavor are out of this world! I used a high quality dark brown molasses sugar and pricked the dough with the fork before baking. This is a KEEPER for sure. Thank you sooo much for this recipe! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

      Delicious, simple, perfection. I made this as a birthday gift for a friend who loves gingersnaps, and she loved them.

      Just excellent! I did substitute allspice for the cloves but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. It was a big hit at our family Christmas gathering this year and DIL even asked for the recipe. It is so easy and so good - it's hard to stop nibbling!
