I make these every year for the holidays and everyone loves them!! The substitutions I make are using half a cup of butter and half a cup of shortening, this changes the texture and they are PERFECT; also, adding cinnamon and allspice. Thanks.

Very yummy recipe. I used orange extract instead of zest and they still taste great! Love the texture too.

They were not bad, but not a lot of flavor and too soft.

I enjoyed these cookies and even had a request for the recipe. Chewy and mild flavor. I might add more orange flavoring next time.

One of my new favorite recipes! These are delicious! I didn't have orange zest so I used 1 tsp of lemon juice. I don't know if that really did anything. I also added 1 c of semi-sweet chocolate chips because we are chocolate freaks over here :) Topped with sprinkles to decorate for the holidays. Thanks for sharing :)

Yum! These are great cookies. I can't possible see how the recipe can be tweaked at all. They're perfect just the way they are! Thanks for sharing!
