      These were quite easy to make & came out great. They taste yummy & look pretty, particularly with the grated orange rind in the icing. Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #10. Thanks Mischka for sharing this keeper.

      A very nice soft cake like texture in a biscuit, and the icing makes a nice tangy flavour which goes very well with these biscuits. Mischka, the only problem I had was it did not say when to add the egg yolk, so I added them after creaming the butter,and it worked fine... but apart from this I had no problems the recipe was easy to follow. Wherever the yolk went these still turned out great and very nice. Thanks Mischka.

      These are good cookies. One of my PAC-06 choices. I had to use lowfat margarine had no butter. The glaze is wonderful, good taste to top it off with.
