I found this recipe a few years back on Better Home and Gardens site. I tweeked it a bit, added some razzle dazzle, and made it a cookie swap winner. This has a light citrus swoon, a crispy crunch, and a creamy chocolate finish. This is a pretty cookie. With the added 2 chocolate drizzle and golden sprinkles, you've got a winner. —Renee Glerum Dwyer
