|Orange butter cookies with festive sprinkles|
I will leave you with some step-by-step pictures:
|Can you see the specks of orange zest?|
|I cut the cookies into 1/4" thick slices which I thought was too thin but trusting Flo, I did it anyway|
|Mmmm... sprinkles :o)|
|Place the dough inside a paper towel tube to keep the log round|
|Sweet, orange-y, tender, melt-in-your-mouth!|
- Hubby thought the cookies were WAY too small and a bit bland, even with the added orange zest. He gave them an 8 out of 10, and asked me to not make this recipe again :o(
- As for me, I have mixed feelings about this recipe. I liked the tenderness of the cookie, and the nice butter and orange flavor, and yet I wasn't wow-ed by it. I have to agree with my husband about the blandness, even with the added orange zest. I'm actually sad to say that I doubt I'll make this recipe again. Sorry Flo!
- The only possibility I see is making the chocolate dough by itself and adding some peppermint oil to it. That might be pretty good and not so bland.
