Made these for my sister's "tea themed" brunch baby shower last November & they were sooo good! Very simple & addictive! Thanks for the post!<br/>Update: 12/1/13: we make these annually, since they're just that good. We've never had an issue with the orange sugar not adhering to the cookies warm out if the oven...today we did. I modified an orange glazed cookie recipe to make this work by simply adding a small amount of orange juice to the orange zest sugar...perfection. I used a small spoon to place the glaze atop as that seemed to go more quiclkly than dipping them individually. Let them dry for a bit & we store ours in the freezer. We actually liked the glaze even better than the orange sugar! Great cookie!
These cookies turned out so flavorful and delicious. I had many compliments on them. I used satsuma tangerine juice & peel because I had them on hand. I actually used a whole tablespoon of the shredded tangerine rind processed with sugar. Rolled the cookies while still warm in this as your recipe stated and they were exquisite! Thanks for a wonderful recipe, Lennie!
Lennie these orange snowball cookies are wonderful. They were beautiful with a cup of tea. What a lovely tender, flavourful cookie. Instead of using white sugar I rolled my cookies in icing sugar and orange rind. (just a personal preference)Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
