The original recipe came from a community cookbook. I don't like using shortening in cookies, so I use butter..but if u don't care, then thats waht the original recipe called for. Or you could use 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening. I also added the orange zest to them. These are a very good cake like soft moist cookie. Bursting with orange flavor. yummm
My own pix will be added when I bake these again.

These cookies are so light and refreshing! With just the right amount of orange flavor, they are the perfect sweet accompaniment to morning coffee or as an after dinner treat. The Test Kitchen
