My first flavor combination of this series is one of my favorite: chocolate and orange.
I have this fond memory of my father bringing home these little chocolates. I was reluctant to try them at first, doubting that orange and chocolate would go together. After some convincing I popped one in my mouth and fell in love. There's something about the way the citrus melds with the creaminess of the chcolate that is just out of this world.
Using the chocolate wafer cookie recipe from yesterday, I added 1 tablespoon of grated orange zest to the dough the same time I added the butter. After rolling the dough into a log, I let it chill in the freezer for about 30 minutes. I then removed it from the plastic wrap and rolled the whole log in the orange sugar. I rewrapped the dough and returned it to the fridge for another 30 minutes before slicing and baking as per the recipe.
The resulting cookie had a wonderful orange flavor, and the sugared edges added some crunch to the already crispy cookie.
