Chocolate for Dipping

  • 4 squares 1 ounce each semisweet chocolate
  • 1 tbsp shortening or butter

Orange Butter Cream

  • ½ cup powdered sugar

  • 1 ½ tsp orange juice
  • ½ tsp grated orange peel


  • In medium bowl, beat butter, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla until fluffy.

Prepare Chocolate for Dipping

  • In a small heavy saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate and shortening. Stir to blend.

  • Place slightly rounded ½ teaspoon of butter cream on flat side of half the cookies.
  • Top with remaining chocolate dipped cookies, flat side down, forming sandwiches.
