These are wonderful! I’ve made them twice, the first time as stated and watched as my roommates devoured them. And the second time just today but this time instead I substituted lemon juice and zest for all things orange, at the request of one of my roommates, absolutely delicious as lemon drop cookies too!
These were pretty good at first. But they got kind of soggy. I also had a terrible time getting the frosting to be the right consistency. I had to add a lot more powdered sugar.
That was delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used butter in both cases instead of margarine. Perfect result. Cakey, and soft cookie. I sanwiched the icing between two cookies, and felt that something was missing, so I dipped half of the whole into melted chocolate glaze. Perfect combination of flavors! You can't go wrong with orange and chocolate! Thanks for the recipe, pretty and delish!
Very easy and quite good. I was a little concerned when I was mixing the batter since the consistency was a little gooey but it was great in the end. the sour cream really makes the cookies light and fluffy. Next time I make these I will use a bigger bowl to mix in, medium was too small. the dough spattered when I mixed all the flour (one cup at a time) in. The icing was easier to work with once it cooled down and became thicker. I will add a little more orange peel zest to the icing next time, just for a stronger flavor. Otherwise, this recipe is a keeper.
These were a hit at my party. The recipe certainly made plenty. Instead of dropping them by the spoofulls, I pipped them out into small little rosettes and used the icing to sandwich 2 of the cookies together. These freeze very well and are very tasty. Thank you for the recipe!
If you enjoy soft cookies you will LOVE these.I made the folloiwng changes; butter instead of margarine and I doubled the frosting!
This is a very good cookie and a versatile base for variations. I have done a lemon version (excellent) and today a cranberry-orange version. I added a large handful of dried cranberries that I ran through the food chopper. Tasty!!
Delish! Co-workers were ridiculously enthusiastic. Wish I'd doubled the frosting, though.
