  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a microwave-safe dish, melt the unsweetened chocolate, stirring frequently until smooth. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Divide dough in two. Mix orange zest into one half, and melted chocolate into the other half. Use a bit of each mixture to form a ball about 1 inch in diameter.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until center is set. Cool on wire racks.

Something is wrong with the proportions in this recipe; I'd like to try it with an additional cup of flour. The dough was sticky and hard to work with; I had to chill it before rolling the cook...

Excellent cookie. I used 1/2 tsp of orange oil instead of the zest.

These cookies were amazing! My husband and daughter ate them up! I followed the others advice and added a bit more flour, used cocoa powder, and divided them into two logs (which I refrigerated)...

Easy and delicious! We added a lot more chocolate and a lot more orange zest to make these cookies explode with deliciousness

Everyone that tried these cookies absolutely LOVED them. I doubled the recipe, so it made a lot. I used fresh orange peel ground in the food processor. These cookies are GREAT!
