    This recipe is almost identical to my Grandmother's with the exception that she did not have baking powder in her's. Instead she had 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. This was always her most requested cookie. Give that a try maybe it will work out better for you.

    I'm not sure what went wrong but these were.. well.. bad. They tasted like shortening and flour. I added an additional tbsp of orange zest to no avail. I even used fresh squeezed orange juice from wonderfully tasty oranges. If I attempt these again, I'll use butter instead of shortening and some orange extract for added flavor. Maybe I did something wrong? I don't know - I'm definitely not an expert cook but I usually can follow a recipe.
