My all time favorite cookies where the olive oil taste matches perfectly the orange and cinnamon flavor. My mom used to make them all the time and helped her by eating them :P Don't know why they never come as perfectly as when mom bakes them, maybe they lack mom's touch or she has a secret that hasn't shared with me yet. Anyway they're still very nice and somehow healthy :) —Ejona Varangu

As someone who has tasted these recently, I can definitely say they are a Must-make, for holiday cookie season or just anytime you feel like eating some good old cookies :)
