Dark Chocolate Drizzled Orange Cinnamon Spritz Cookies #OXOGoodCookies

 

This is a very special post.   Why?  Because it’s for a great cause.  I’m proud to be baking a difference with OXO and food bloggers across the country this month by sharing a cookie recipe to benefit Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.  For each blog post dedicated to this campaign in September, OXO is donating $100 to the fight against childhood cancer.  That’s something to shout about!

Now about the recipe.  I’m generally a drop or bar cookie kind of baker, but I decided it was time to do something different for this campaign and make spritz cookies with the OXO Good Grips Cookie Press.  Would you believe in all my years of baking that I’ve never made them?  High time don’t you think?  Since chocolate and orange is such a flavorful combination in my book, I decided this would make a great spritz cookie.  In addition to a double punch of orange with the extract and fresh orange zest, a little cinnamon gives these cookies just the right spice.  Top them off with a dark chocolate drizzle and oh my goodness!

These cookies are disappearing real fast around here.  As they’re small and you can pop the whole cookie in your mouth, I find myself eating a few at a time because one just won’t do!  Bake a batch today and you’ll see what I mean.

You have a chance to help in this important cause too.  For every OXO item sold with the special sticker below, OXO will donate 25 cents in support  of pediatric cancer research as part of its $100,000* pledge to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.  Look for specially marked OXO products at participating retailers.  Click here for a guide of the products included in the Bake a Difference campaign.
