Beth's Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
These were ok. My MIL has a recipe similar to this which I've made and I made these to compare/contrast. With this recipe, I found it a bit difficult to stir in the OJ and zest after I had already put in the flour. It would be easier if that step was done earlier, like when the eggs/sour cream/vanilla get added (as is done with my MIL's recipe)? Also, I agree with those who said the frosting is more like icing. I even added an extra cup of powdered sugar and it was still pretty liquid-y. Also, I found this icing WAY too tart. My MIL's recipe calls for only 1 1/2 teaspoons of OJ and 2 teaspoons of zest and it's a much mellower, happier orange flavor, not "slap you in the face with orange"
