Chunky Orange Marmalade Cookies

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.
