I used zest from mandarin oranges and added a 1/2tsp dried lavender flowers. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. The cookies turned out fluffy and chewy. I'm a crunchy fan 100%! Some had more of a salt flavor than others. I'm going to get this right eventually! Read More

Variation: used lemon vest instead of orange. Formed into "logs" after cool dipped bottom in white chocolate and 1/2 bath in milk chocolate disks. Chopped walnuts very fine in food processor and folded into dough. Great flavor will definitely try again with orange zest. Great cookie! Read More

I used pecans instead of walnuts and added a splash of orange juice before adding the flour. After I baked the cookies I dipped the bottom into white chocolate. They baked into not too thin and not too thick cookies that stay soft. I did not refrigerate my dough. Read More
