3/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup sifted flour
1/2 cup very finely chopped slivered blanched
3/4 cup very finely chopped candied orange peel
2 (4-ounce) bars sweet cooking chocolate
Stir cream and sugar together to blend well. Stir in flour, almonds
and orange peel. Drop by scant teaspoonfuls about 1-1/4-in. apart
onto heavily greased and floured baking sheet. Flatten cookies with
spatula; they will be about 1/2- to 3/4-in. apart after flattening.
Bake in moderate oven (350') about 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies
brown lightly around edges. (Centers of cookies will be bubbling
when you remove them from oven.) Let stand 2 or 3 minutes or until
they become firmer. Place on wire rack or waxed paper to cool.
Meanwhile, melt chocolate over hot, not boiling, water. When cookies
are cool, turn upside down and brush with melted chocolate. Let dry
several hours or overnight at room temperature to give chocolate
time to set. (In hot, humid weather, use chocolate confection
coating, melted, instead of sweet cooking chocolate.) Store in
covered container in refrigerator or freezer.
Yield: 4 dozen
