Gluten Free Chocolate Orange Cookies

Makes about 20 cookies

Ingredients

Cookies

6 Tablespoons butter or butter substitute, room temp
¼ cup honey
2 eggs,
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 Tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice
orange zest
1/3 cup cocoa powder
¾ teaspoon baking powder
1 1/3 cups mixed gluten free flours (I used ½ cup oat flour, 1/3 cup sorghum flour, 3 T white rice flour, 3 T tapioca flour, 2 T potato starch, but you can use your own preferred blend or an all-purpose gluten free flour blend)

Glaze

1 Tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice
orange zest
¾ cup powdered sugar

Instructions

Prep

Zest one orange and squeeze out the juice

Cookies

Heat oven to 350º F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Beat butter until creamy. Add honey and blend together with electric mixer until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Blend in 4 Tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice and half of the zest. Add cocoa powder, flours, and baking powder and beat until thoroughly mixed. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake 7-9 minutes

Glaze

Beat 1 Tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice with powdered sugar and remaining zest. Add more juice or powdered sugar as needed to achieve desired consistency. For glazed cookies make the icing a bit thinner and ice hot cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. For frosted cookies make thicker icing and let cookies cool before adding frosting. For bright orange Halloween cookies add a bit of orange food coloring to the frosting.
