“My husband said to never lose this recipe. These cookies taste like an orange cranberry cookie we used to buy from a coffee shop that closed. He absolutely loved them. I did add a 1/4 teaspoon of orange extract and used all white flour. I’ll be making these again.”

    1. Hi Patricia! I’m SO glad you both loved these cookies. We are especially fond of them and I absolutely love the idea of adding orange extract. The next time I make them — I’ll have coffee shops on my mind. Thank you so much for coming back to tell me how you liked them.
