I’m glad you guys are excited for this! I am, too.
Bonnie- Food doesn’t stick around for long around here. These will keep for about 5 days stored at room temperature (maybe a little longer in the fridge). I wouldn’t freeze them because the confectioner’s sugar will get weird. You can either freeze the dough in balls and bake as needed or maybe try freezing the baked cookies before coating in confectioner’s sugar.
Hey Pam! Maybe? The dough was quite easy to work with, so if you are having problems I would guess something went wrong. BUT! What I would do is put the dough in the fridge for a bit to firm it up and then proceed with your fingers crossed.
Just made these tonight – wasn’t expecting such incredible results from such an easy cookie. Divine. The orange zest is a must. They melt in your mouth. Thanks for these and the rest that are coming over the next few days, which I’m sure will be equally delicious!
These sound great! I’m planning on making these today for the cookie packages I send out for Christmas. The packages don’t go out until Monday so would these freeze well? Maybe, make the dough, freeze that, then bake, closer to shipping date?
update! made these cookies last week and as i expected – fantabulous. i added a little chipotle chile powder to “mexicanize” it a little more but otherwise i kept it the same and it was lovely. even made it to a blog post ;).
tonight, i’m making lemon-lime-basil shortbread cookies. sounds like something you might be into.
I made this last night for a cookie exchange and they super delicious… even considering that I left them a bit longer in the oven than I was supposed too. I added a bit more orange zest (almost a full medium orange). I also had dough left over so it’s now in the fridge and more cookies will be done during the weekend :)
