Chocolate-orange cookies

Do you like the chocolate oranges that are all over the place at Christmas time and then disappear the next week?  I wasn't crazy about them until they started showing up in a dark chocolate version, and then...well, let's just say that I wish it was Christmas all year.

Chocolate-Orange Cookies are a way to enjoy that flavor all year round.  I changed the recipe only slightly, adding a tiny bit of orange extract and making them a bit smaller.  By using rounded tablespoons, I ended up with 5 dozen cookies, which I baked 12 per sheet, rotating and switching the sheets half way through baking.  They took about 12 minutes at 350 to be perfect.
