Orange Cookies

As a child I use to love Orange Delight biscuits which were discontinued many many years ago.  These cookies remind me of those biscuits and my childhood memories.

My daughter doesn’t like anything other than her favorite Chocolate Chunk cookies or so I thought, for she loved these cookies. The recipe is from The Cookie Writer and with pics like that I needed no more motivation. I made minor changes to the recipe by skipping the rolling-in-confectioners sugar part which gives the cookies a crinkle effect. I also substituted all-purpose flour with whole wheat.

Oh BTW next time I will go a wee bit crazy with the zest!
