This is a really amazing recipe and treat! I was prompted to make these because I had a lot of oranges around the house and sour cream in the fridge but I will definitely be making this over and over.
I was impressed with the outcome. Bakery quality! (and I am not just saying that b/c I made them, it is more like I can't believe I made these!!!)
So if I can make them, you can make them and feel like you just went to an upscale bakery and paid a fortunate for this little piece of sweetness!
