I have always loved these cookies! I sometimes add a little bit of grated orange rind to the dough for a different flavor. I usually roll them in sifted powdered sugar once the cookies have cooled. I don't always have cake flour and have substituted all-purpose flour with ok results.
Over all I'd say this is a good recipe. It's moderately quick and the cookies came out nice. After I left it in the fridge for 30 minutes the dough was really sticky. I ended up making them drop cookies instead of rolling them.
Very easy to double ( would recommend it).. roll them in confectioners sugar when they are out of the oven
