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

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.

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

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.
