Last month I did a guest post with these delicious little Orange Chocolate Spice Cookies over at Crazy for Crust. Hopefully you are one of Dorothy’s loyal readers and didn’t miss them, because if there is a baking blogger you should be reading, it is her.
But on the off chance that you missed the Dorothy is Awesome Memo, here’s the recipe!

This recipe comes from my grandma, but has been adapted to be more to my liking, taking out lard and putting in butter, taking out nuts, and adjusting all the ingredients so that it can be cooked on a smaller scale.
Grandma liked to cook for the whole city.

These cookies come together so easily, really, you just mix it all together at once, form into little balls and bake them. They are so delicious warm and right out of the oven, or you can let them cool and dip them in powdered sugar and milk to give them a nice glaze.
