These cookies are full of orange and chocolate chip goodness with a sweet coffee matte finish.


Ingredients

1/2 cup Butter, room temperature

1/2 cup Granulated Sugar

1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar

1 Egg

Zest of one Orange

1 Tablespoon Fresh Orange Juice

1 1/2 cups Flour

Prepare

  • Preheat the oven to 350.

  • Incorporate the dry ingredients and mini chocolate chips into the dough.

  • Form dough into 24 rough balls.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and espresso power.

  • Roll dough balls in powdered sugar mixture.

  • Place dough balls, well spaced, on a cookie sheet (non-stick, greased or parchment lined) and press dough balls down into approximately 1/3" depth disks.

  • Bake until golden. About 12-14 minutes.
