Chocolate Orange Cookies Ingredients
How to Make the Chocolate Orange Cookies (18 cookies)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line 2 cookie sheets with a sheet of baking parchment paper.
Beat together the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and milk until well-combined.
Sift the flour and unsweetened cocoa powder over the bowl with the butter mixture. Then, gradually mix together to form a soft dough.
Use your fingers to incorporate the last of the flour and bring the dough together.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness.
Use a 2-inch fluted cookie cutter to cut out cookies.
Of course, you can use 2-inch cookie cutters with other shapes. Heart-shaped chocolate orange cookies are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Place the cookies on the prepared cookie sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Check the cookies at 10 minutes.
Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes before moving the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely and become crisp.
For the icing, sift the powdered sugar into a bowl. Stir in enough orange juice (add one tablespoon at a time, so you do not make the icing too thin) to form an icing that coats the back of the spoon.
Swirl a spoonful of icing on each cookie and let dry to set.
After the icing is set, melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe cup or bowl on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute just to soften it. Then, stir the warm chocolate until it is smooth.
Drizzle the melted chocolate across the icing and let dry to set before serving.
