I have used this recipe three times now. I find it easy, quick and delicious. It is a great recipe to take for potluck gatherings and any place where you might wish to donate food--bake sales, funeral receptions, etc. It travels well. It's not real fancy but tastes delicious and the absence of a rich frosting or topping appeals to my family.

I LOVE this recipe. Everytime I go home on leave, my family asks me to make it. Also, its a HUGE hit at potlucks. The only thing I changed was a added a splash of almond extract and a splash of vanilla extract. Like one of the other reviewers mentioned, I too made this recipe without shortening the first few times. I just put half butter and half vegetable oil. It worked like a charm and it was a little easier to mix than plain shortening alone.

...Wow! these have an amazing, "addictive" flavor, said my husband. Very moist, sweet but not too sweet, maybe a little bit cakey, but I might have overmixed the batter. I didn't have all the ingredients so I had to change a few things, but I guess I got lucky because they were delicious! I had no shortening so I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup of half vegetable oil, half whipping cream. Used sliced almonds instead of butterscotch chips and included 1/4 cup powdered almonds (removed 1/4 cup flour). Baked 23 minutes. I love how the orange, coconut and almond flavors blended together, the result smelled and tasted quite delicate and refined. Will make again.
