My family likes a soft cookie, and this recipe is one of their favorites. The frosting is so pretty and the marmalade is flavorful, plus it keeps the cookies nice and tender.

"Cookies are a little dry. I used Cushman's Honeybell.Marmalade which is sweeter than most marmalades, so flavor was very good. If I make again, I will decrease flour slightly."

"I did not like these cookies. They were soft but rather dry and tasteless. Even though they were not over-baked, whenever there was orange peel from the marmalade on the bottom of the cookie it was bitter just from browning. I also did not like the mouth-feel of the frosting. I believe the marmalade gave the frosting it's unusal texture. I will not make these again."

"I thought the cookies were quite tasteless. After taking the first batch out of the oven, I added some orange peel to the rest of the dough. Still wasn't enough flavor, so I added orange extract to the frosting. Overall, I was disappointed."
