Ingredients

  • 1
    pouch (17.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
  • Butter and egg called for on cookie mix pouch for drop cookies
  • 3/4
    cup 70% cacao bittersweet chocolate chunks
  • 1/3
    cup coarsely chopped slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1
    tablespoon coarsely chopped orange peel
  • 1/4
    cup coarse sparkling white sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Make dough as directed on pouch for drop cookies. Stir in chocolate chunks, almonds and orange peel.
  • 2
    Divide dough in half; shape each half into a roll, 8 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. Roll in sugar. Wrap dough logs tightly with plastic. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until very firm.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 375°F. Unwrap 1 of the dough logs; cut into 1/2-inch slices. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets, reshaping if necessary. Repeat with remaining dough log.
  • 4
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours or until chocolate is set. Store covered in airtight container.

  • Reshape cookie dough after cutting slices for a rounder shaped cookie.
  • A bartender’s zester with channel knife is the best tool for easily making beautiful shreds of citrus peel.
  • To toast slivered almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds in ungreased shallow pan. Bake 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
