This recipe was a bit of a let down. The taste is okay but it's just not my kind of cookie.

Superb.. I loved the texture of these, the taste... everything! I made a bunch of cookies to take in to work, but these are NOT leaving the house!! All mine

I used lemon zest and extract instead of orange. Delicious!!! Be sure to let them cool and harden a bit before removing from the pan!

Made them today with raspberry filling on the half moon. They are very yummy

Very good easy to make. I did the refrig method. Loved the orange in it.
