Orange Walnut Cookies

Barbie Dombroski


These are one of my family's favorite cookies, and mine as well. I have been making these for over 20 yrs now and are still requested for all gatherings. The texture is delicate & delicious, and the orange flavoring makes these scrumptious. Once you try them, they just might be one of yours too.. They will melt in your mouth! A hot cup of tea goes great with them. You can even custom them by adding some of your favorite ingredients! I personally like them just the way they are....
