Recipe: Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies
With only a few basic ingredients, these cookies can be mixed, baked, and ready to give or serve with virtually no notice. But they're so delicious and fragrant, with their amazing citrus aroma, that they seem very sophisticated even though they're so simple.
- 1/3 cup butter
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 6 tablespoons orange marmalade
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1-1/2 cups flour
- 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
- confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet
In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar and egg; stir in marmalade, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the flour and the chocolate chips.
Drop batter by measuring tablespoons onto the baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden on the edges. Remove to a rack and cool completely.
Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
Makes 48 cookies.
