Ridiculously simple! These were such great-tasting little cookies, and so pretty. I would advise keeping an eye on the baking: butter ran everywhere - next time I will try reducing the amount. Perhaps it was my pan (I used an insulated baking sheet) or I might have even used too much of the sugar, causing excess buttery liquid? Also, I did substitute orange oil for the zest - the taste was spectacular. I will certainly be making these again, but a bit less butter, going easier on the stick-preventative sugar dusting, and with a regular baking sheet rather than insulated. I highly recommend trying these low-labor, pretty-to-present cookies, especially for coffee pairing or a "light and dainty" dessert.
