Chocolate Butter Cookies

Christine Whisenhunt


This is yet another of the cookies I used to make at Christmas for gifting. These are good, though unexpected, as they are not your average "Christmas" cookie, but who doesn't love chocolate?! I have come to love chocolate and orange. I think next time I make these, I'm going to try orange extract instead of almond. YUM! Be creative, use your favorite extract too!
