These are easy to make and SO tasty... I had never baked cookies on my own before and I was so eager to nibble on something sweet that I didn't take the time to put the dough in the refrigerator. Does that step really make that much of a difference? Because I can't imagine these cookies tasting any better!

I tried a recipe with just a slight variation before I found this exact one and this one is much tastier due to the use of the juices, not just the zest. Also if you cut the slice in 1/2 it looks more realistic like a fruit slice.
