Thanks for a great recipe! The only change I made was to use a rounded teaspoon of zest, 'cause I'm a big fan of that particular ingredient! Otherwise, I did as directed & my cookies were a big hit! Definitely something to make again! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup cooking game]

<p>I live in Northern California in the town of Placerville. It's a one hour drive East to Lake Tahoe or one hour West to our State Capitol, Sacramento. Great location. <br /> I have been overdue for an update!!! 1/10 <br /> My Boy's are doing well. Nick is still in Australia and Jon is still here at home. They both graduated high school last year. I hope NIck will come to the US for college, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo!!! (we'll see) He may stay down under for college :( <br />Jon is working and figuring out life....he plans on being an entrepreneur im sure. <br />We have two dogs, Jewel and Bob both adopted from the local shelter. They love each other. <br />I love spring and fall the most and love being outdoors. <br />My Boss passed away last year :( I miss him soooo much. <br />This last year has been very hard for me. <br />I am doing better now. <br />Hoping 2010 brings lots of health and happiness to all :) <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/beartag_1_1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/adopted_1_1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Octoberevent.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/photo-swap-7sticky.jpg alt= /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a142/callylanne/candy.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/craze-e2banner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
