Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets with shortening and dust with flour.

  • Stir cream and sugar together in a bowl. Stir in orange peel, flour, and almonds until combined. Drop batter in teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, keeping each cookie well apart from each other.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely on a wire rack, about 30 minutes.

  • Spread bottoms of cooled cookies with melted chocolate using a spatula, or spear cookies on a fork and dip bottoms into chocolate. Let dry, bottoms-up, on waxed paper.

Cook's Notes:

An even heavier cream is preferred by some.

Watch cookies carefully while baking, as they burn easily. Cookies will be very thin.
