1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 (1-ounce) square unsweetened baking chocolate, melted, cooled

1 teaspoon instant espresso powder

1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine sugar, butter, egg and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine melted chocolate and espresso powder in another bowl. Add half of dough to chocolate mixture; beat until well mixed. Add orange zest to plain dough in bowl; beat until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape each half into 4x5-inch rectangle; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours.

  4. STEP 4

    Roll out chocolate dough between two sheets of lightly floured waxed paper to 12x7-inch rectangle. Repeat with orange-flavored dough. Place orange-flavored dough on top of chocolate dough; gently press doughs together. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion, starting with 12-inch side. Wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm.

  5. STEP 5

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  6. STEP 6

    Cut rolls with sharp knife into 1/4-inch slices. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-9 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheets; cool completely.

Tip #1

To keep cookies round when slicing, turn roll 1/4 turn after each slice.
