Love the addition of the orange zest. I also added a couple squeezes of juice from the zested fruit. I do find them to be a "dry" cookie. I also rolled them into a log shaped , chilled and then sliced. I think next time I will just chill and drop by spoonfuls and flatten. Made for Holiday Tag 2009

These were a very unusual flavour, not at all what I was expecting! But they were good, very chocolatey. I doubted that they would be good cut-out biscuits, so I rolled them into logs and chilled, then cut the log into slices. Made plenty but they didn't last long!
