4 dozen  cookies


Cinnamon-Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup butter / room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp. orange zest
1-1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
2 egg yolks
1-3/4 cups flour
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
cinnamon sugar
Combine the butter, sugar, zest, cinnamon and salt in large bowl. Beat until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks and beat again until fluffy. Reduce mixer speed to low and add flour, chips and mix just until incorporated. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface. Divide in half. Roll each piece to form a log 1-1/2" in diameter. (You can, as I have done in the photo above, shape the logs to make hearts, squares, etc.) Wrap logs in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm -- about an hour or more. Preheat oven to 350. Unwrap the dough and cut each log into rounds about 1/4" thick. Put on baking sheet about 1-1/2" apart. Bake until edges are brown -- about 15 minutes. Transfer to wire rack and cool about 5 minutes. Put the cinnamon sugar in a bowl. Add warm cookies and toss to coat. Return cookies to rack and let cool completely. Repeat with remaining cookies. Enjoy!
