Glazed Orange Spice Cookies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
These spread out quite a bit. I rolled tablespoon-sized balls of dough in my hands then flattened them on the baking sheets. They formed together, but were easy to break apart cleanly. Added ~ 1/8 tsp orange extract to dough and only about 1 tbsp orange zest, and the orange flavor was very mild. Made only half the glaze which was the perfect amount. Might make again.

These really were very good. The spices complement the orange quite nicely. The glaze was a bit too sweet for my taste (but I suppose the sweetness depends on the type of marmalade you use, so my advice: use one with a high-fruit, low-sugar content). The texture was good. Crisp on the outside, spongey on the inside. If you like less of a spongey cookie, like me, I advice making the squares smaller, and leaving them in the oven for 2 to 4 minutes longer.

This was a NICE surprise and holy smokes they are addicting. I used butter and butter flavored shortening and toasted the almond slivers in the oven until they were golden brown. They gave the cookies a lovely rounded flavor of both citrus and toasted almonds. Delicious and thanks for sharing. My hubby suggested toasted coconut the next time.. could be good too!

This is a wonderful cookie. All the spices with the orange zest is a great combination. I would've liked a bit more orange flavor but i am not one to mess much with a recipe. i cut the glaze ingredients in half due to another reviewer saying there was a lot leftover. The amount was then perfect. The glaze was a bit too sweet for my taste...i think it overpowers the taste of the cookie instead of compliments it, therefore i gave this 4 stars. keep in mind that this cookie spreads alot, so if you are like me and don't roll out the dough and opt for just making flattened balls, keep them around 1" to 1 1/2" in diameter. overall, this cookie was yummy! will make again. thanks!

I used tangerines instead of oranges, which gave the cookies a more tart flavor. I love how buttery and crispy they turned out. Delicious!

This cookie got raves from my family and friends. The orange flavor, crispy/chewy texture, and tangy frosting make it a great addition to my repertoire.

WOW! My mom and I added this to our Christmas cookie line-up and it was an extremely welcome addition. The glaze is delicious and the sweetness of it really compliments the spice cookie nicely. The only suggestion I could think to make would be to add a little more orange juice to the glaze mixture to give it a little more orange flavor, but otherwise this cookie was amazing. A word of caution, the recipe makes a lot of glaze and even after brushing a decent amount onto the cookies I still had some left over. I'm not complaining though, as I used the leftovers on a few slices of pumpkin bread I made, and it was delicious. Definitely a keeper that's likely to make an appearance at future Christmases (if I can wait that long to make it again).
