Orange and Pine Nut Cookies

Sounds weird, right? A little. I must admit, the name of the recipe is just not that enticing. Honestly, the cookies aren’t that great either. I gave it a whirl….thought I might find a new, interesting cookie. Oh well…they are still pretty good. They just aren’t going to blow your socks off or anything.

As you might have guessed, there are two main flavors in this cookie. Orange and....

Toasted pine nuts.

I got this recipe from Fine Cooking. I added a little orange juice to the dough because it was too crumbly. Otherwise, I followed the instructions exactly.

After you make the dough, you roll the cookies into little balls and then coat them with sugar. Then you flatten the cookie before baking (like this).

Here they are freshly baked!

I think these might be good with coffee or tea. The citrus flavor is more pronounced than the pine nut flavor.

This is a good cookie to make if you’re dieting. Not necessarily because they are low cal…because you could probably just have a bite and be done.
