These cookies are VERY cake-like and spongy. They are also VERY bland. I even added an extra Tbs. of orange zest and doubled the orange juice. Maybe with some orange icing they would taste better. The tops of the cookies will not get brown, so don't bake them much past their bake time.

I made these with butter instead of shortening, a half a cup of orange juice and added cranberries. They turned out very spongy, so my husband said they would make better muffins. I think they have a nice flavor, but aren't very good as cookies.I went ahead and tried making them as muffins and they were so much better! They rose well, cooked all the way through and were slightly crisp on the bottom.

I'm not sure what everyone is complaining about. I used 3 oranges worth of zest and thought they tasted just the right amount of orangy. Be careful when you put them on the cookie sheet, they balloon out pretty big.
