Orange Poppy Seed Cookies

Happy weekend!

It's a nice day to bake something fresh and sunshiny--like a batch of Orange Poppy Seed Cookies perhaps? Part tangy, part sweet, each cookie tastes like a bite of sunshine. This recipe is adapted from Simply Recipes. Instead of orange zest, I used orange extract instead.
