CHOCOLATE ORANGE LACE COOKIES

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest (about 1 orange)

1 1/4 cups rolled oats

1 teaspoon double-acting baking powder

1/8 teaspoon table salt

1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with kitchen parchment.

In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg, vanilla and orange zest, then beat until light and fluffy, about another 4 minutes. In another medium bowl, mix together the oats, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.

Scoop the dough a tablespoon at a time onto the prepared baking sheets, arranging them about 2 inches apart and about 12 per baking sheet. Use the back of a spoon to lightly press down on each mound to slightly flatten it. Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, on the oven’s center rack until the edges are browned, 8 to 10 minutes.

Transfer the cookies to a wire rack immediately and let them cool completely. Makes 2 dozen cookies.

    Got olives? Try tapenade at home

    Olive tapenade, an earthy, salty paste of olives, capers, anchovies, garlic and other flavorings, is easy to find jarred in specialty shops. But when you whip up a batch yourself at home, the flavors pop in a surprising way that makes you never want to buy it in a jar again.
