I just made these cookies for a Christmas cookie exchange and they were truly delicious! I don't understand why some people said the dough was crumbly and the cookie not very good. They must have done something wrong because the dough was absolute perfection and easy to work with and the cookie was delicious. My mom is European and is not sold on just anything. She loved these. I have learned over the years if mom approves then its really good. Thank you so much for this recipe. Its a keeper.
This is a great holiday cookie, I too have requests for this cookie, it's very good.
Fantastic! These cookies have been a hit every time I have made them. I have had several people specifically request these cookies after trying them. As another reviewer stated, they have a sophisticated taste. Followed recipe exactly and had no problems.
Dough is extremely crumbly and difficult to work with. Would not make this again.
Cookies were delicious, but I thought the glaze was a little "hot" at first. Turns out they mellow with time. Fantastic recipe.
Really buttery and smooth. I made a lemon gelato the day before and used limoncello and lemon zest as opposed to Grand Marnier and orange zest. The lemon flavour shone through beautifully and the limoncello glaze added an interesting tartness to the glaze. They were a huge hit at the restaurant that I work at, with even our pastry chef asking for the recipe!
Time-consuming but very good!! A big hit at my bridge group.
Wow! These cookies are great. Very buttery, crispy and the Grand Marnier glaze adds that extra layer of flavor. I added more orange rind then the recipe called for. I found that the cookie had the best flavor the first day... The Grand Marnier really "popped" out! This recipe is a keeper.
Was this year's favorite in my Christmas-In-A-Box offerings. Only deviation I made was I added food coloring to make a sherbet-colored icing and called them Florida Sunshine cookies as I reside in Florida ;•)~ HUGE HIT! Will forever be in my repertoire now.
These were awesome and easy. I rolled the dough into a log and let it chill. Then sliced medallions and baked. I also realized I had no Gr. Marnier for the glaze. Used Malibu coconut rum instead. Touch of the Caribbean on these cold winter days.
I pretty much followed the recipe, substituting orange oil when I ran out of orange zest. I found the dough very crumbly and hard to roll initially, and I think they only taste OK. I might like it better with more orange zest. I'd rate it 3 stars based on the amount of effort and the taste. However, my co-workers seemed to really like the cookies, so I'm giving it 4 stars.
These are wonderful-- a sophisticated orange flavor, and very buttery-- yet quite simple to make. I took these to a potluck and the comments I got were "wonderful", and "two thumbs up", etc.
