Soft Orange Cookies


Post is also available in: Italian

Soft Orange Cookies are really good treats. They are soft and fragrant really delicious whether alone or soaked in milk. Many recipes, almost all in truth, cover this type of biscuit with powdered sugar but since they are not / we are lovers of sweets that are too sugary, I omit it as I do very often but know that if you want a sprinkling of sugar it is not bad, indeed.

Prepare Soft Orange Cookies

The preparation of these sweets is really simple and above all quick, in fact it will only take 40 minutes and you can enjoy these little delights. My mom usually adds the chocolate chips to make them even more delicious, but you can omit them or use raisins. Their scent is truly irresistible and they are really short-lived here at home. When preparing them try to use untreated oranges as the peel will also be needed, but I recommend not the white part which is bitter.
