Great for the holidays or anytime! Add to your holiday platters for family and friends. Frosted or plain they are both great! Cooking time is per pan of cookies.

I love this recipe, it's great for "emergency cookies". I was about to post my version but couldn't word it clear enough, so thanks! I use a tsp of lemon juice instead of orange zest, and sprinkle the tops w/nutmeg. I also use butter instead of oil for greasing the glass. A great recipe for kids to help with (Thanks Mom!)
