The New Cutout Cookie: Danish Chocolate Orange Cookies

 I first posted these cookies here. They are yum, seriously yum. The recipe calls for rolling them into fingers, pressing a fork and then dipping.

But I decided to take an old favorite and try to roll and cut them out. 

Worked beautifully.  So good.

So, go ahead and try it. Give your cutout cookies a new delicious flair.  They are the fanciest cut out cookies I've had!

Danish Chocolate Orange Cookies
from Old World Favorites, page 22

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 T grated orange peel
1/2 tsp orange extract (or I've used 1 T of orange juice instead, or you can use lemon juice)
1 1/2 cup flour

1) Mix above ingredients in sequence. 
2) Roll out onto floured surface, adding flour if needed. Use cookie cutters to cut desired shapes.
3) Place on a greased cookie sheet, bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes.
 4) Cool.
 5) Melt 4 ounces of semi sweet or dark chocolate. 
6) Dip end of cookie in chocolate, dip in crushed nuts or sprinkles(optional), let cool on wax paper.
