My mother had this recipe in her cookie collection and she and I began baking these when I was a young teen. There is no sugar among the ingredients, just the subtle taste of marmalade to add sweetness. It's a soft cookie with an interesting combination of orange and chocolate.

"Good texture, overall tasted like a spice cookie. I'd cut the salt to 1/4 tsp bc it was overpowering. This cookie was lacking something. Without the chocolate chips it would have been inedible. Possibly some orange zest and a 1/4 cup sugar would have rounded out the flavor."
