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” balls, and place them 2” apart on a lightly greased baking sheet (I found that a 1/2 tablespoon measuring spoon was the perfect size for "dainty" sized cookies).
  • 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; sprinkle glaze with chopped nuts, if desired.
  • 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, and continue to microwave 15 seconds at a time until all the chocolate is melted. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate or you will end up with a grainy, hard blob of chocolate!!

    You're killing me here with all these new great recipes. I have to admit that I've never been to a wedding where there were cookies put out for the guests. What a good idea! Congratulations to the Bride and Groom! And thank you for the new recipe to tease my tastebuds!

    Krummie - just when I was really missing your posts this showed up. Citrus plus chocolate - heaven. I'll do these with semi-sweet chocolate and know how wonderful they'll be.
