Honestly one of the best cookies I've ever made (and I've made a lot!). Would be excellent with dried cranberries or maybe even chocolate chips.

A nice fresh cake cookie, but after baking 1st batch I added some nuts. May try part shortening & part marg next time. This recipe makes a lot more than 3 doz. Will try putting cranberries in for fall. We did use an orange glaze to frost from the Cranberry Orange Cookie recipe.

These were very good! And easy to make, it takes just a few minutes to mix everything. The whole orange is an awesome idea, gives the cookies an interesting, more original taste. I halved everything except the orange, used olive oil instead of shortening and cinnamon + cloves because I ran out of vanilla. Next time I will try with vanilla as well. Thanks for the recipe!
