How to make it

  • For the cookies, beat together sugar and butter in a large bowl.
  • Beat in the extract, egg and orange peel.
  • Stir in remaining cookie ingredients until well mixed.
  • Roll dough into 1-inch balls, and place them 2-inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass that has been dipped in white sugar.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes, just until the cookies begin to brown very lightly around the edges.
  • Remove cookies from baking sheet and cool on racks or waxed paper.
  • When cookies are cool, dip ½ of each cookie into the glaze and lay on waxed paper to allow the glaze to set up and harden.
  • Store in air-tight container, using waxed paper to separate layers – this will prevent the chocolate glaze from sticking to the other cookies.
  • To make the glaze, place the chocolate chips in a narrow, deep microwaveable bowl (I use a 4 cup glass measuring cup for this).
  • Add corn syrup and shortening to bowl.
  • Microwave glaze for 45 seconds.
  • Depending on the power of your microwave, continue to microwave 15 seconds at a time until you can stir the glaze and all the chocolate is melted.
  • NOTE: If you have never melted chocolate in the microwave, you must be VERY careful not to overheat it or the chocolate will form into a massive grainy, hard mess and it will have to be thrown out! Continue to microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, until all the chocolate is melted and the glaze is smooth.
