I had some oranges to use up so thought I’d try this recipe with some of the zest I had leftover after juicing them. It’s extremely quick to make and they taste great. Very summery.

I baked half of the dough today and froze the second half for a rainy day or when I need an emergency snack for lunch boxes or visitors.

This recipe was inspiration for my version of cookies.
