      These were pretty good, not quite what I expected. I didn't use the orange zest, just not my thing. Instead I chopped up 3-4 squares of very good chocolate (Aldi's) and some walnuts, increased the vanilla, added some almond and rum extracts. Andypandy, thanks for sharing . . . Janet

      Nice soft texture. I love the orange flavor provided by the zest. I just used the zest of one navel orange and I am not sure it was a full 2 Tbsp. but the flavor still came through. Thanks for sharing!

      A five star all the way! A wonderful addition to the holiday tray - and for those times you want to add something special along with coffee or tea when you have guests. Love the addition of the orange zest and the mini chocolate chips. Suspect if one did not have the mini chocolate chips they would still be great! Highly recommend these to any who are looking for holiday cookies. Thank you - another andypandy winner. Made for 'Let's Party' 2009.
