This recipe came about by accident when I was making both my husband's favorite peanut butter cookies and my favorite chocolate cookies. I had two small portions of dough left over and decided to combine them into one flavor-filled cookie.

My mother had this recipe in her cookie collection and she and I began baking these when I was a young teen. There is no sugar among the ingredients, just the subtle taste of marmalade to add sweetness. It's a soft cookie with an interesting combination of orange and chocolate.
"I created this treat for my husband, adding light and low-fat products to the cookie dough," explains JoAnn Belack in Bradenton, Florida. "It was so fantastic that I fixed it with conventional ingredients for guests. Since it can be made ahead of time and frozen, it cuts stress for busy hostesses…and really, who doesn’t love peanut butter?"
“Make the season special for family and friends with these crispy coffee-dunkers," suggests Julie Plummer in Syesville, Maryland. "Simply bake up a batch, wrap several slices in bright cellophane and add holiday stickers and curly ribbons for last-minute gifts.”
These cookies are a real hoot, and they taste as good as they look. Each fall, it was a tradition for my Grandma to bake batches of Owl Cookies. The sweets were so tasty that we'd beg her to make them before the leaves had even begun turning. —Liz Clemons, Sumter, South Carolina
"I tell people these cookies are 'so good' and they are quick to agree after a taste," says field editor Marie Hattrup of Sparks, Nevada. Her fudgy treats feature a marshmallow layer topped with a squiggle of chocolate frosting.
“I made these cookies for my daughter’s Winter Gala sorority event,“ writes Kathy Witherup from Villa Hills, Kentucky. “They look exquisite with their smooth white chocolate glaze...and they taste great too!“
