Orange Spice Cookies
By Kate Miller
Who else love cinnamon spice and all things nice? The captivating sweet aroma of
cinnamon reminds me of those good old-fashioned cinnamon cookies that my late grandma
used to bake for Christmas.
I made a few changes in my grandma's original recipe and it turned out perfect! The
cookies are amazingly crunchy at the edges, soft in the centers and delicately scented
with an array of warm spices. They are really easy-to-make biscuits, and believe
me, they disappear fast.
My kids love these orange tea cookies for afternoon snacks. They are also great to
have around when you crave for sweet butter cookies. Sure to make you go mmm...
