I was making the cookies with my mother and husband so I totally forgot to take pictures!! We used the microplaner to grate the orange peel and my husband juiced the citrus fruit. My mom mixed all the ingredients in the mixer to get the dough ready (so no pictures there...sorry).
We used the small cookie cutters to make circles and placed them on the cookie sheets.
We put them into the oven to bake.
The finished cookies looked very lightly browned on the edges and not very different from those in the oven.
The cookies got a little hard in the container so I put a slice of bread in the container and they got softer and super tasty. We also made some with a simple glaze with powered sugar and orange juice that was tasty!!!
I hope that you make these yummy cookies for yourself because I know that you will enjoy them. I know that I will make them again soon! Sorry it took me so long to post!!
