I’m so excited!! I was finally able to find True Orange in my local grocery store this weekend. Yea!!
For those of you who are regular readers of my blog, you know how fond I am of the True Lemon product line.
I’ve been patiently waiting for their newest flavor, True Orange, to arrive here…and was so happy to find it yesterday.
I’ve made recipes with both True Lemon and True Lime, but this is my first recipe using True Orange.
I must say, True Orange lived up to my expectations, and gave these cookies exactly the orange flavor I was looking for.
I was genuinely surprised at how closely these homemade cookies resembled and tasted like the prepackaged Milano cookies you buy in the store. You can bet I’ll be making these again! 🙂
Orange-flavored Milano Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 packets True Orange
2 tablespoons water
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, cream the 1 cup of butter and brown sugar. Add vanilla, True Orange packets and water. Mix well.
Gradually stir in flour. Blend thoroughly.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, approximately 2-inches apart.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until cookies spread and turn a golden brown. Cool on flat surface.
For filling, place butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for approximately 30 seconds, or just until melted. Let cool slightly.
Spread chocolate on one cookie and top with another.
Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies.
