We did not care for these cookies.

Curious as to instead of greasing the Pan, could parchment paper be used ?

Hi there! Yes, parchment paper can be used instead. Enjoy!

Am I right, there are no eggs in this cookie?

That is correct!

Outstanding Orange Cookies! These are delicious! Moist, easy to make and bursting with orange flavor. Remember to wash oranges with warm soapy water, rinse and dry before zesting.

My favorite cookie! Sometimes I cook 2 or 3 carrots mash them and add to batter. You see the orange carrots, but it tastes like oranges! Makes it very moist, too!

I'm curious about making them with lemons, too. My local grocery had a big sale on Meyer lemons and they were just too pretty to resist. Now I have to use them, but all the recipes I've found were stupidly complicated.

Hi Sue, We haven't tested this recipe with lemons, but don't believe it would work as the substitution of 1 cup of orange juice for 1 cup of lemon juice wouldn't equal in taste. However, we do have some great lemon cookies you might want to try, like our Glazed Lemon Zucchini Cookies and Italian Lemon Cookies.

I wonder if these could be made with lemons instead.

Usually I'm not a fan of cakey cookies, but these were pretty good. I think the glaze put them in a whole different category. Loved the fresh zest, the flavor really came through.
