They have grated orange peel and lots of butter, mmmmm. But since I only made about 2 dozen from the leftover dough, I'm still going to make the cookies I set out to make in the first place, the old family recipe, Wagon Wheel Cookies. They're chocolate cookies, refrigerated and rolled in powdered sugar. They're the best.
