Chocolate Chip and Cinnamon Cookies

These cookies are simply delicious! They are warm and soft and have a bit of a crunch once they cool down.  The cinnamon and chocolate chips are the perfect combination together.  I also added a tad bit more of orange extract, which gave the cookies a lovely orange taste, that was not too over powering. 

These cookies would be great with tea, as a gift (which is what I made them for), or to eat yourself with friends (I also did this).  The recipe is found in the book 1 Dough, 100 Cookies by Linda Doeser on pg. 56.

Makes about 30

-1 cup butter, softened
-scant 3/4 cup superfine sugar
-1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
-2 tsp orange extract
-2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
-generous 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
-dash of salt

Cinnamon coating
-1 1/2 tbsp superfine sugar
-1 1/2 tbsp ground cimmamon

1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F/ 190 degrees C.  Line 2 cookie sheets with baking parchment.

2.  Put the butter and sugar into a bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon, then beat in the egg yolk and orange extract.  Sift together the flour and a pinch of salt into the mixture, add the chocolate chips, and stir until thoroughly combined.  

3.  For the coating, mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow dish.  Scoop out the tablespoons of the cookie dough, roll them into balls, then roll them in the cinnamon mixture to coat.  Put them on the prepared cookie sheets spaced well apart.

4.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.  Let cool on the cookie sheets for 5-10 minutes, then using a metal spatula, carefully transfer to wire racks to cool completely (or on the counter).
