    I cant take lard , what shd I replace with?thanks

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Do you have shortening? Even coconut oil could work well. As it is only 1 tbsp of lard in this recipe you can also replace it with another tbsp of butter.

  3. Ivy Chiang Author says:

    Hi.. need your help to advise the orange juice and zest in grams.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Sorry for the late answer.. did you tried the recipe already? These cookies are really flavorful.. when I've made the recipe I haven't measured in grams but the juice from one orange but should be  no more than 1/3 cup (80 ml). As for orange zest.. I've used a lot so so flavor is  strong.. the zest from 4 oranges should be around 5 to 6 tbsp.  Hope this helps.
