Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluff. Beat in egg and orange peel. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with orange juice, beating well after each addition.
  2. Using a cookie press fitted with a bar disk, form dough into long strips on ungreased baking sheets. Cut each strip into 3-in. pieces (there is no need to separate the pieces).
  3. Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes or until edges are golden. Cut into pieces again if necessary. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  4. In microwave, melt chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip each end of cookies in chocolate mixture, allow excess to drip off. Roll in walnuts. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.
