the 34 cookies of Christmas: day 13

The thirteenth cookie highlighted this year is a delicious orange and chocolate chip shortbread. The secret to these fragrant and flavorful cookies is the variety of orange flavorings that give them their robust citrus flavor. Not only do we include freshly grated orange peel, but also orange juice, orange oil, and a splash of organic alcohol-free orange extract. The combination of the peel and the oil provide a slight orange glow to these cookies, into which we fold miniature chocolate chips for textural contrast. After baking, the corners are dipped in fine Belgian bittersweet chocolate, because who doesn't love the sweet-bitter combination of chocolate and orenji?
