Chocolate Dipped Orange Cookies


Chocolate Dipped Orange Cookies ... Refreshing orange flavored cookies, made even better by dipping them in melted chocolate!


Chocolate Dipped Orange Cookies
**************************************

Makes : 15 cookies


Ingredients :
  • 100 gm.  butter, softened
  • 50 gm.  caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp.  grated orange zest
  • 125 gm.  plain flour
  • 1 tsp.  baking powder
  • Milk / dark chocolate, chopped


Method :
  • Preheat the oven to 180 C / 375 F. Line a baking sheet with wax paper; keep aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugar and grated orange zest until light and creamy.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl. Gradually add this to butter mixture and mix well until the mixture comes together and forms a stiff dough.
  • Roll dough into equal sized balls, flatten slightly ( not too flat as the cookies will spread a bit during baking ) and place them on the lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until pale golden around the edges and firm.
  • Cool for a minute on the baking sheet, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or microwave until smooth and melted.
  • Dip each cookie halfway into melted chocolate; allow excess to drip off. 
  • Place on a paper lined baking sheet or plate and allow to set.
