"What yeast is to be used for this recipe, instant or active dry?"

"Does the recipe really mean to use active dry yeast? I'm not sure how it would dissolve? Is this a mistake and it should be instant?"

"Very good cookies! Turned out just like the picture. I had to chill the dough because of being short on time and rolled out the next day. I rolled them between two sheets of parchment paper. No problem rolling at all, went very fast. Will definitely make again."

"I made a batch for a cookie exchange, and quickly realized that I needed to make another for home! I especially liked the hint of orange. I did have to make double the glaze, though."

"FABULOUS! I put these in the goodies baskets I make each year for friends. RAVE reviews on these. Yes the dough is soft and a little tricky, but totally worth it!"

"These cookies are delicious! The only issue I had was when it came to getting the dough flattened before rolling. The dough is very soft; I had to use a lot of flour and ended up just patting the dough with my floured hands. Rolling them up required a careful touch and some patience, but it all was worth it! They are so yummy, and definitely a keeper. I'm even going to try the dough recipe to make other types of cookies. In spite of the slight difficulties, it's a winning recipe for sure :-)"
