This look WONDERFUL! I have a friend that is gluten free and can't have eggs. I'm be making this recipe for her! Orange and chocolate are one of my favorite combinations.

Hi

I really want to try your recipe! Can you elaborate on the chocolate chip part? Because in your photos it looks like your chocolate chips are dispersed in the cookies and not like all the in yhe center like your instructions say. Thanks for your help!

I made these cookies today and they are delicious!! These are so good, I had to ask my cookies eaters to wait to eat them after I put the glaze on. So, good with or without glaze. I was a little disappointed that the cookies didn't come out as pretty as the picture above. They ended up being big round flat cookies.... The only thing my hubby and I could think of would be that my almond flour was old and that is with measuring them out by "almost" filling an actual TBSP w/ the dough and leaving them full & round. Also, I tried making a hole, for the choc chips, but it didn't seem to work for me... So I piled them in the middle anyway and they dispersed quite nicely. Ty! Yummy in our Tummy!

Your recipe calls for 1 bowl of sugar...is this a typo? I really want to make them tomorrow!

This is to roll the dough in before you bake them. :)
