These get crispy when cool. I named them for May 1, the day I invented them. They taste bright and sunny, like the summer season Beltane is supposed to herald.

Not the prettiest cookie ever (kind of anemic looking and the white chocolate chips started to turn color), but they had a lot of potential, so I made them more eye appealing and gave them a boost of orange flavor at the same time by drizzling on a glaze of powdered sugar, fresh orange juice and zest. That glaze took these over the top to something outrageously delicious - buttery, creamy with white chocolate, unmistakably orange and very rich. A thick, soft and tender cookie. Adding orange extract as some others have is NOT necessary. Adding the fresh orange glaze, on the other hand, is. Mmmmmm.

These cookies didn't have nearly enough orange flavor. Even after I added an 1 tablespoon of orange extract, they weren't orange-y enough. Since they aren't a very sweet cookie, either, I glazed them with some orange glaze. With the glaze they were pretty fantastic.

Great recipe, but I used three tbsp of orange zest and added one tbsp of orange extract. They tasted great, and the orange wasn't overwhelming at all.
