"Pretty bland until I doctored them. Added more salt and a lot more orange extract. Even put in 1/2 tsp. of almond extract. Maybe using salted butter would have reduced the need for more salt and improved flavor. Had to bake them an extra 3 minutes and found that sugars did not stick very well to the warm cookies. They tasted pretty good after the modifications, but you can tell these were made with shortening."

"Basically a orange flavored sugar cookie. Pretty good if you are wanting a break from chocolate."
