Posted in : Cookies on by : Daphne


1 (1 ounce) square unsweetened chocolate3/4 cup butter3/4 cup white sugar1 egg1 tsp vanilla extract1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour1 tsp baking powder1 pinch salt1 tbs orange zest


Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). In a microwave-safe dish, melt the unsweetened chocolate, stirring frequently until smooth. Set aside.
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.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until center is set. Cool on wire racks.
