These are cookies that my daughter made over the Holidays. I just love their flavor so of course had to make more. There is just enough hint of orange, the dough freezes well too. Just either put the entire batch in a plastic bag and write the instructions on the outside or make the balls and freeze them on a cookie sheet and when frozen place them in a plastic bag, of course with the instructions on the outside. You can keep these frozen for about 4-6 months so when company happens buy you could pop them into the oven and have fresh homemade cookies to serve.
