Makes: 30 2" cookies


For the Cookie:

2 cups Hungry Harry's All-Purpose Flour Blend

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3 tablespoons powdered sugar

8 tablespoons coconut oil or vegetable shortening, softened, not melted

1 egg or 1 egg replacer, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon orange extract

2 tablespoons orange juice

1 teaspoon orange zest

4 oz bittersweet chocolate


How To

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk. Add the oil, egg, vanilla, orange extract, juice, and zest, and mix to combine. The dough will be thick and stiff – you can squeeze it together with your hands to bring it all together.

Roll the dough into balls just smaller than a golf ball, then flatten with your palm. Place on a parchment lined sheet tray. Bake for about 6 - 8 minutes, until they just start to brown.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 15-second intervals until completely melted. Dip the cookie halfway into the chocolate, then cool on a wire rack until the chocolate has set.
