1 tablespoon shortening

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter and powdered sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add cocoa, orange zest and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 9-12 minutes or until cookies are set. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

Tip #1

- For an alternative topping, stir together 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa. Shake over slightly warm cookies.

Tip #2

- European-style Dutch processed cocoa can be substituted for American unsweetened cocoa powder. Dutch processed cocoa is darker with a more mellow chocolate flavor.
