Directions

  1. Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg, orange zest, orange juice and food colors; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed.
  2. Divide dough in half; shape each half on lightly floured surface into 8-inch log. Wrap each in waxed paper. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or until very firm.
  3. Heat oven to 400°F.
  4. Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Place 4 mini chocolate chips upside-down onto each cookie to resemble holes in buttons. Bake 6-7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  5. Place 1/4 cup chocolate chips and oil in bowl. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, 60-90 seconds or until melted.
  6. Spoon melted chocolate into resealable plastic food bag; cut off 1 very small corner of bag. Pipe chocolate onto cookies in X-shape to connect button holes.
