Orange Cake
The cake was awesome. I used Orange Zest and Orange Extract since many said that the cake didn't taste as Orange as they wanted. The cake was really moist and it tasted very good. A good cake to have with tea or coffee. YUM!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
Okay so the trick with this cookie was refrigerating the dough for like 30 mins. The first time I made it, it puffed up and was like a cakey mess. I put them in the refrigerator and then tried it again and they came out awesome. Also I think you have to roll them fairly thin too. It was good. The flavor was ok. I would've preferred something more tastier. New time I will add lemon zest or orange other pointed out.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints
OMG...What a great cookie! I am only sorry I didn't make more. These were sooooo good. Make sure you use Almond Extract. I like other's used other types of jams. I used Apricot, Orange, Strawberry and Raspberry. Raspberry was my favorite. These were sooo good! OMG, and I thought they were going to be horrible since some people here said that the jam went all over. Nope for me it was perfect. I used the back of a teaspoon to make the thumbprint and I added the jam and baked. They smelled so good too! I will certainly be making these again for any occasion. I got RAVE reviews. In time they get soft and just even better. This is the perfect tea time cookie!!!
