Ingredients

How to make it

  • Oven: 325°F
  • Beat the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth.
  • Beat in the salt and flour until large clumps form.
  • Add orange peel, zest, juice, and vanilla. Mix well and press the dough into a tight ball.
  • Shape according to how you want your slices to come out (rectangles, squares, rounds, wedges), wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
  • Slice the dough to 1/4 inch thickness and place on cookie sheet with enough space between for spreading.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden.
  • Let cool completely on cooling racks.
  • Melt chocolate gently (temper it if you will, but I am too lazy).
  • Dip cooled cookies in chocolate or drizzle with chocolate and let cool until chocolate sets.
