These little tasty treats reminded me of my Dad for some reason. I guess because he loves Dulce de Leche so much. The cookies were moist, made orange juice and orange zest. I could keep eating them but I limited myself, which was hard to do. They were great with a glass of milk or to enjoy with a cup of coffee, for dessert or maybe as a little treat in the morning. The dough kind of reminded me of a sugar cookie but with added juice and zest.
