This recipe has a very sticky consistancy even after refridgerating, it was more like a drop cookie consistancy. The flavor of the dough was great however this should not be called a cut-out cookie recipe unless you plan on adding alot more flour than is called for in the recipe.

I didn't have any oranges to zest so instead I used 2 Tbsp orange marmalade and I only had pecans so I ground them up with sugar and a bit of cinnamon and put that on top and they were incredible. The sour cream makes them super moist, but the other reviewer was right this is a drop cookie rather than a cut out because the batter is really sticky. I thought it was a great tasting treat though, thumbs up!
