I mostly followed your recipe, but when it came to the cream filling, I added 2 teaspoons of minced orange zest, giving an even more intense orange flavor to these wonderfully delicious cookies! Definitely a recipe worth keeping! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in the special event All Aboard for the L-O-V-E Train!]

I dont care to bake much anymore but very happy I changed my mind and made these cookies! I mixed the cookie dough in my Kitchenaid mixer and it came together nicely. Bought a cake decorating kit at the craft store to pipe my cookies. For the orange cream do make sure to buy the pulp free orange juice so you have a very smooth filling. These cookies are so good, loved the orange cream filling! A pretty cookie for a platter, afternoon tea, or holiday. Thank you dizzydi for posting your recipe!
