These chewy cookies are great for a cookie exchange or to bring to a holiday party!
I had some orange zest and pre ground clove/allspice mix from making Gingerbread, so I put it to use in this cookie recipe for a get together the next day. I know zesting citrus can be a pain, but it definitely pays off in flavor for these yummy cookies!
