These cookies are packed with orange flavor. These are called many things and made into many shapes. One of them being Italian Knot Cookies. I have seen them round, made into "S" shapes or in a knot, depends on how the baker wants to make them. I have also seen them made into many elaborate shapes. This is just one of the many recipes made in my family from generations. This one specifically is geared towards an orange flavor. This recipe makes a lot of cookies and can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
