MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 8, 2013

These cookies are so easy to make and very soft. I am going to make them next time with lime in replace of everything orange and also lemon in replace of the orange ingredients. I hope it goes well. They went quick in my small family of four.

MY REVIEW

I own a pastry company and am always trying new recipes. This is one of my customer favorites. I mix it like a cake (cream fats and sugar, then alternately add liquids and dry ingredients). I always substitute lemon juice for orange juice in the glaze. I thought it was a little flat with the orange juice, but the lemon glaze adds a great tangy flavor! Mine always bake up much flatter than the picture. It's really hard to eat just one!
