quick cooking oats
Yummy. I took others' suggestions and cut the sugar to less than half a cup, and the cookies were still quite sweet - 1/4 cup of sugar would have been plenty. I used the zest of 1 whole orange, and the orange flavor really took over the cookie - you could barely taste the honey. So, next time I would not go quite so crazy with the orange zest. Overall, very tasty and easy. I brought some to work and they were gone in 60 seconds. Even our neighbor's picky 2.5-year-old loved them.
Excellent texture, very moist and chewy. I love honey - however, I thought they were overly sweet without having much flavor. Maybe the addition of cinnamon would have helped.
This was a great recipe, especially the great honey flavor, and crunchy ouside and chewy inside. I used cinnamon in place of the orange zest and a fake egg replacement. Thanks so much!
These were very pleasant flavoured cookies. It is a great way to use up the last little bit of honey. We will make these again. I altered the recipe a little by using butter instead of shortening and 1/2 cup of sugar. Next time I might add a tsp. of orange flavouring as well. Thanks for sharing your cookies with us.
I wasn't impressed with the flavor of these cookies, although I liked the texture. Next time I make these I will add some almond and/or vanilla extract to mellow the orange flavor, which was just too bright.
i enjoyed these cookies a lot. soft & chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside with a nice buttery flavor. i didn't have oranges so i used 1/2 tsp. orange juice in place of the orange zest, and i didn't have raisins, but the cookies came out perfectly. i would love to make these again with raisins!
I Brought these to bible study and they disappeared. I substituted butter for shortening. Sugar was decreased to 1/2 cup but could have been cut down to 1/4 cup. I used 1/2 white flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour, and then for the 1/2 cup extra because of the butter, I added cornmeal. I also added chocolate chips. They had plenty of taste. This is a great cookie to experiment with!
Yummy and so easy! Will probably add some chopped nuts into the mix next time and omit the orange zest.
