These are pretty good cookies, but I was a bit underwhelmed by the orange flavor. I doubled the zest, but maybe next time I'll triple it. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 margarine only because that is what I had. I did not add the nuts since I don't like them, but added white chocolate chips instead. And I used Craisins (not chopped). The cookies came out in texture and appearance just like a chocolate chip cookie (flat and chewy), but maybe it is because I used both baking soda and baking powder. The recipe doesn't call for the baking powder, but out of habit I used an equal amount of both. I also only baked them for 7 minutes, so that may have made a difference also. I didn't make the icing since I used the Craisins and white chocolate chips. I might consider making it anyway next time just to intensify the orange flavor. Overall though, a very tasty cookie!
