Tasty Tuesdays Orange Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

I was at my cousins last week while she was trying to find a dessert recipe for her dinner party that night. She came upon this recipe and it was SO yummy and SO easy to make!

  • 1 cup icing sugar

  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel

  • 1 3/4 cups flour

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips (we used regular size and it was fine)


  • Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees
    Sift or stir flour & cornstarch together - set aside
    In a large bowl, beat icing sugar & butter until light & fluffy
    Add orange peel & blend well
    Stir in flour mixture - mix well
    Stir in chocolate chips
    Divide dough into 4 equal parts & shape each part into a smooth round ball
    On ungreased cookie sheets, press or roll each ball of dough into a 6" circle 1/4" thick
    With a long knife, score each circle into 8 wedges.
    Leave in place on cookie sheet & prick each wedge about 3 times with a fork
    Bake for about 20 mins til the edges are very lightly browned
    Cool on cookie sheets 5 mins
    Prick again & cut into wedges
    Place on wire racks to cool completely

    Melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips with 1 tsp oil in microwave, dip edges.
