Chocolate Friday once again! You know what that means - pat yourself on the back for getting through the week and reward yourself with chocolate!
I ran across today's recipe by accident. I was looking through my old stand-by cookbook (BHG New Cookbook - "new" being 1989 - LOL) and saw the words orange and chocolate combined in a cookie recipe. I took a second look! I had forgotten that my "basic" cookbook is full of yummy recipes to try!
These cookies are delicious! The orange and chocolate flavors are subtle, but nice. The cookies are great on their own, but would be even better with a cup of tea or coffee or served alongside some sorbet - mmmm!
Orange-Chocolate Slice Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening (I substituted coconut oil)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons finely shredded orange peel
2 tablespoons orange juice
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 square (1 oz) semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In mixing bowl, beat butter and shortening with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add about half of the flour, the sugar, brown sugar, egg, orange peel, orange juice, and soda. Beat till thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flour. Stir in chocolate. Shape dough into two 8-inch rolls. Wrap in waxed paper or clear plastic wrap and chill 4-24 hours.
Cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 375 degree oven 10-12 minutes or till edges are lightly browned. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Makes about 60.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Now if you'll just link up some chocolate posts, it'll be like a chocolate party! Go find your new or old family-friendly chocolate posts and link them up below with MckLinky. So glad you're willing to share the chocolate! :) (Did you see all the fantastic posts linked up last Friday?)
Have a chocolatey day friends!
