MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 16, 2014

"I asked my SIL what cookies she would like for a massive platter on xmas eve with our blended families. She mentioned these orange/chocolate cookies & honestly I couldn't remember making them since I made them only one time many years ago straight from the magazine. After I searched online and found the recipe again, I remembered how good they were. I decided to give them a whirl again. These are so refreshing & different for a cookie platter-they make a nice presentation. A great adult style cookie perfect with coffee or tea. I love orange & chocolate together & the cookie itself melts in your mouth. If she remembered these cookies from years ago...they are that good. Thank you taste of home for this online resource..without it I'd be up a creek with no cookie."

"This was a new addition to our Christmas cookies this year. It is wonderul, not too sweet, stays moist and a refreshing change of flavor. I used pecan chips for ease and they tasted fabulous."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 10, 2010

"I've only made this once and the chocolate came out more like frosting than a glaze so I just spread it on one half instead of dipping. I'm making another batch tomorrow for a cookie exchange--we'll see if that is any different. (Obviously, I liked them enough to make again.)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2010

"I made these today. I think I would add a littler orange extract to them the next time I make them because they could use a little more orange flavor. Also, I might try toasting the almonds that I sprikle on."
