  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter or butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange flavoring
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 2 teaspoons shortening
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped walnuts


  1. Coat a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, egg yolk, and orange flavoring with electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth. Add flour mixture and orange peel; beat on low speed just until combined.
  3. Using a cookie press fitted with a star disk or ribbon disk, force unchilled dough into 2-1/2-inch sticks or ribbons 1/2 inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. (Or use pastry bag fitted with a star tip.)
  4. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm, but not brown. Transfer to a wire rack; cool.
  5. In a small saucepan, melt chocolate and shortening together. Place nuts in a small, shallow bowl. Dip about 1 inch of the end of each cookie into chocolate; dip coated tip into the nuts. Place dipped cookies on waxed paper to set. Store in a covered container in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Makes about 60 cookies.
