Orange Cream Cheese Cookies (Wash boards)

Karla Everett


I just love the flavor of these cookies and they are so easy to make using a cookie press.

Every once in awhile before I bake these cookies I will sprinkle cookie candies on the top. The chocolate ones are a really good compliment with the orange flavor.
