    Not the prettiest cookie ever (kind of anemic looking and the white chocolate chips started to turn color), but they had a lot of potential, so I made them more eye appealing and gave them a boost of orange flavor at the same time by drizzling on a glaze of powdered sugar, fresh orange juice and zest. That glaze took these over the top to something outrageously delicious - buttery, creamy with white chocolate, unmistakably orange and very rich. A thick, soft and tender cookie. Adding orange extract as some others have is NOT necessary. Adding the fresh orange glaze, on the other hand, is. Mmmmmm.  -  24 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These cookies didn't have nearly enough orange flavor. Even after I added an 1 tablespoon of orange extract, they weren't orange-y enough. Since they aren't a very sweet cookie, either, I glazed them with some orange glaze. With the glaze they were pretty fantastic.  -  16 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great recipe, but I used three tbsp of orange zest and added one tbsp of orange extract. They tasted great, and the orange wasn't overwhelming at all.  -  21 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
