My husband gives these his seal of approval! Nice orange flavor to these cookies; they'd be good even without the chocolate. Ok... who am I kidding? EVERYTHING is better with chocolate, right? :)

Ingredients

COOKIES

1 c
sugar
3/4 c
butter, softened
1 tsp
vanilla
1
egg
2 c
flour
1 tsp
baking powder
3/4 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
grated orange zest

CHOCOLATE DIPPING GLAZE

1/2 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 375. In large bowl, combine sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; blend well.
2
Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and orange zest. Roll dough into 1" balls and place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.
3
Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute and transfer to cooling rack to let cool completely.
4
Combine glaze ingredients and melt in microwave. To do this, heat for 1 minute; stir. Heat for 30 seconds; stir. Repeat heating for 30 second intervals until most chips are melted, stirring in between each cycle.
5
Dip 1/2 of each cookie into the glaze. Shake off excess and place dipped cookies on a cookie sheet that has been lined with wax paper. Chill in fridge until glaze is set, about 10 minutes.
