Reviews for Orange Spritz Cookies
"I just made these and the flavor is simply wonderful. I gave a 4 star as the yield is 1/2 the amount specified. My total was: 2 1/2 - 3 dozen. i would have doubled the recipe if I would have known the yield would be so small."
"I have made these for years now. they are addictive. the orange adds a litle something. It's not over powering."
