Wonderful cookies just as is. I really prefer this type of cookie made with buttermilk--and this is perfect. The dough is supposed to be like thick cake batter. I use a small (about 1/2 oz or tablespoon size) ice cream/melon scoop to handle the dough--makes perfect sized uniform cookies with a smooth top for icing. Also goes fast this way.

The batter was just like a cake mix. I added about another 3/4 cup of flour but that left the cookies tasting floury. Not sure what went wrong but the only thing that saved them was the orange cream cheese frosting I put on them.

I added extra orange juice to the frosting, and a little orange food coloring and orange extract to both the frosting and cookies, they turned out great. I also put 1 tsp baking soda in mine instead of the ½ tsp that the recipe calls for because that's what my grandma's recipe has.
