The secret to these biscuits is chilling the dough overnight before baking. The orange zest gives them a delightful flavour.
Great cookies- make sure you change the BAKING SODA FROM 1 CUP TO 1 TEASPOON. I recognized the typo as it is easy to do. I didn't have enough for the cookie jar as they kept disappearing from the counter while they were still warm. - 25 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I have looking for quite some time for a really good oatmeal cookie recipe and I believe I have found it! They smelled great while baking and were tasted delicious! I will definately make these again. PS - thanks for changing the baking soda amount. - 29 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
