Almond-orange biscuits (cookies)

I’m doing copy-edits at the moment, which involves going through the manuscript with a fine tooth comb, making tiny changes, and checking the comments and corrections made by the copyeditor. They’re things like changing my occasional Australian spellings (which are UK spellings) to US spellings, picking up missing words, ensuring consistency — I sometimes called Lady Someone Mrs. Someone — that kind of thing.

There weren’t a lot of those to check, but once I’d dealt with the copyeditor’s remarks, I always go through the manuscript again to make sure it’s all as I want it to be. And when I came across a mention of orange biscuits (cookies), I recalled some delicious orange and almond biscuits I’ve made a few times from this website. Apart from being delicious, they’re also gluten free, and being Italian, I realized that Lady Scattergood’s cook might have been given the recipe from Alfonso, Leo’s Italian cook.

There’s also a recipe for the same kind of orange biscuits using pistachios instead of almonds, and they’re also delicious.

These look similar to favorite cookies in our family – Chocolate Crinkles and Lemon Crinkles. Since I love almonds there would be another great addition.
