Orange Marmalade Cookies

"I have not tried these cookies. I'm posting this for safe keeping. I found this recipe in The Breakfast Book. This is an old fashioned cookie that is rather thick and chewy with plenty of tasty orange marmalade in it. These cookies can make splendid dunkers with coffee."

  1. My family and I love this cookie. It is so easy to make. I like to use my homemade orange marmalade which has plenty of rind. The cookies are chewy and delicious, perfect with a cup of tea.

Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her. I really enjoy searching for new recipes especially here on Zaar. I'm always finding and adding to my cookbook new and exciting recipes. I also enjoy posting recipes here on Zaar as well. I really love collecting different cookbooks. I have over a 100 and growing! I collect mostly Taste Of Home &amp; community cookbooks.

I'm a part time college student studing Early Childhood Education, but taking time off and hoping to return soon. I live in Elmira, New York where famous writer Mark Twain did some of his writing and he once lived. I have&nbsp;1 cats Samantha and&nbsp;1 dog our newest member MOO MOO (my nieces dog) who are my children as I do not have any human children of my own.

I'm recently&nbsp;married on August 12th 2010. I love spending time with my niece&nbsp;9 yrs old and my newphews&nbsp;7 &amp;&nbsp;8 yrs old. I enjoy couponing and trading coupons.
