These cookies are incredibly soft, buttery, and melt-in-your-mouth. They are infused with orange juice, and orange zest, and dipped in melted dark chocolate. Sprinkle on extra zest if desired!

Slice ‘n’ Bake cookies are definitely one of my favourite types of cookies to make. I love how you can make the dough, roll it up, and store in the fridge or freezer until ready to slice a few off and bake. Quick, easy, and so convenient for when your cookie craving kicks in!

Chocolate Orange Slice ‘n’ Bake Cookies

Deliciously soft, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth orange infused slice 'n' bake cookies dipped in chocolate!
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 37 minutes
Yields 20 - 25 cookies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter 170g, softened
  • 3/4 cup icing/powdered sugar 90g
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons plain/all-purpose flour 266g
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 10 oz milk or dark chocolate 300g, coarsely chopped

Instructions

  1. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and icing sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the egg, and orange juice, and beat until combined. Add the flour, orange zest, and salt, and beat until combined. Add more flour if dough is too sticky to handle.

  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a 12-inch long log, or two 6-inch logs. Tightly wrap the log in clingfilm and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, and up to 5 days. I like to chill mine overnight.

  3. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4, and line a baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  4. Slice the log into thick slices, and place them onto the prepared baking tray. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes until lightly brown around the edges. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  5. Add the chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl, and heat in 20 second intervals, stirring after each one, until melted and smooth.

  6. Dip each cooled cookie in the melted chocolate, and leave to set on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. You can refrigerate to set the chocolate more quickly.

Notes

Cookies stay fresh, in an airtight container, at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 1 week. They also freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge.

Cookie dough logs freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before slicing and baking.

    There’s nothing quite like the combo of orange and chocolate. Reminds me of those chocolate orange candies that you had to smash to get a slice out of! Lol. Anyway, loving these slice ‘n bake cookies, Marsha! Pinned, of course. xo
