Recipe#32 : orange & dark chocolate butter cookies
“Count the memories, not the calories!”
250 gr (2 cups) flour
170 gr (¾ cup) butter
130 gr (2/3 cup) brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 full tbsp. orange zest
200 gr dark chocolate
Beat butter and sugar until smooth, then add the egg, vanilla extract and orange zest. Gradually add the flour and knead the dough until combined and soft. Wrap it in plastic foil and let rest in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
Bake at 180° for around 15 minutes (or less, depending on the oven). Let the cookies cool completely.
Melt the dark chocolate, dip the cooled cookies in the chocolate and place on baking foil to allow the chocolate layer to harden.
