  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nielsen Massey vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nielsen Massey orange extract

Instructions

  1. Place flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a small mixing bowl.  Using a whisk stir until well mixed. Set aside.

  5. Divide dough into two parts.  Place each part on a large piece of plastic wrap and form into a log-like shape about 2″ in diameter.  Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and roll back and forth to round the edges.  Place the dough in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  6. After 2 hours, preheat the oven to 350°F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and slice into 1/4″ thick rounds.  Place rounds on baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until slightly browned on the edges and springy in the middle.
  8. Remove cookies from oven and let cool.
  9. While the cookies are cooling place the chocolate in a double boiler over medium-low heat.  Melt the chocolate, stirring constantly.
