Orange Chocolate Chip Shortbread

Christmas Cookie Time! Here's one that is new to us this year but we all love it. Going to make more.

Adam says Santa likes extra chocolate chips so we added a little more.

Orange Chocolate Chip Shortbread

3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, soft (room temperature)
1 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 teaspoon orange extract
2 egg yolks
6 tablespoons cream (I used half/half)
2 cups chocolate chips

The original recipe called for mixing the dry ingredients, and then adding them into the mixed wet ingredients...blah, blah, blah. I just threw all of the above into the mixer and they turned out fine.

Roll into balls, then flatten with palm of your hand. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Merry, merry!
