These cookies are a great combo of citrus and chocolate! I didn’t make the chocolate drizzle but even so the cookies are great on their own!
- Parchment paper
- 1/2 cup plus 1/4 tsp mild extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Juice and zest of 1 orange
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (at least 70 percent cocoa)
Heat oven to 375°. Line two baking sheets with parchment. In a bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup olive oil, sugar, 1/4 cup juice, 2 tsp zest and vanilla. In a second bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Fold flour mixture into oil mixture. Let stand 5 minutes.
Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets, leaving 1 inch between each. Bake until cookies are golden brown at the edges, 12 to 14 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. In a microwave-safe bowl, nuke chocolate, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes; stir in remaining 1/4 tsp olive oil. Arrange cookies next to each other on parchment paper. Using a spoon, drizzle lines of chocolate across cookies. Let sit until chocolate has hardened, about 1 hour; serve.
