These are a light, chewy and crispy cookie with a hint of orange flavor. A nice twist on the classic recipe. I was browsing through my mother-in-laws family cookie cookbook when I found it. Anyway, it sounded yummy to me and so I copied it down to make. I think the cookbook is called Pany Best Cookies. There were so many good recipes in there, I think I will ask to see it again this year.
