Original recipe yields 5 dozen



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and egg until light and fluffy. Stir in the orange juice and orange zest. Sift together the flour, cornstarch and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the buttermilk and poppy seeds to form a soft dough. Drop dough by tablespoons onto cookie sheets and press a white chocolate chip into the center of each one.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until just golden. Cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Store up to one week in an airtight container.

In theory these looked great, so I disregarded the previous reviews. But this recipe does not work. The first batch was so thin I basically baked orange poppyseed paper, not cookies. (I made no variations.) So I added flour, which made them hard and tasteless. Furthermore, a chocolate button is a large chocolate chip, which looks really stupid in the middle of a cookie any larger than a quarter, and didn't help the flavor of the cookie anyway. This is the first recipe on this site that has failed me, but it failed miserably. Sorry. I really wanted to like it.



I only got maybe 24 SUPER tiny cookies - no where close to 60??? but they tasted good.



No Thanks. Did not turn out well. :-(
