gluten free chocolate orange crinkle cookie recipeI’m not sure who first put the two flavors together, or why we tend to associate it with Christmas- but nothing says the holidays like chocolate and orange. I love chocolate crinkle cookies, but this year I wanted to amp up the flavor a bit. Nielsen Massey sent me a bottle of their pure Orange Extract, and with it I took our usual chocolate crinkle cookies to another level. The orange flavor is there, and chocolate too – and they’re so much better than some chocolates wrapped in tin. Gluten free, dairy free, and bound to become a new holiday favorite – you have to try them this year!
