Thise look amazing Paul!

Did you use orange juice for the flavoring?

Zest from half an orange goes into the dough.  The remaining zest and some juice go into the glaze, which hadn’t been applied prior to the photo.  I didn’t want to mess up the glaze in transit, so it will be applied after I get to the culinary center. 

And they taste even better than they look.
