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? :)

These butter cookies just melt in your mouth. Orange zest gives the cookies a refreshing orange flavor. Dipping them in chocolate makes them even better. Pack in a cellophane bag and you have a lovely party favor or hostess gift. The Test Kitchen
