The original recipe is from a creamery. I made them once just to have something new included with my family's Christmas cookie recipes that have been passed down for generations, some are over 160 years old. My family & friends love them so much that we no longer do holidays without them.

The kids love to put the chocolate chips on and make designs with the toothpicks.

How to Make Chocolate Topped Orange Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cream butter, sugar and orange zest, until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture, alternating with orange juice; blend well.
  3. Scoop up dough into rounded 1-inch diameter portions and place 2-inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until edges are lightly brown.
  4. Remove from oven and add a chocolate chip to the top of each hot cookie. Allow a minute for the chocolate to soften then spread with the edge of a toothpick using parallel strokes (this gives the appearance of drizzled-on chocolate).
  5. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to let cookies cool and chocolate solidify. Store in an airtight container.
  6. Note: Use only the thin orange peel, not the bitter white pith beneath.
