Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup ground walnuts
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in egg, orange juice and zest. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture, mixing well.
  2. Using a cookie press fitted with a bar disk, press long strips of dough onto ungreased baking sheets; cut ends to release from disk. Cut each strip into 3-in. lengths (no need to separate them).
  3. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set (do not brown). Re-cut cookies if necessary. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. Place walnuts in a shallow bowl. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip each cookie halfway in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Sprinkle with walnuts. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set.
