Do you know anyone that likes candied citrus peel and chocolate? They are going to love these easy flavor filled cookies.
If you read my Panko Crusted Salmon in Orange Sauce post you will know I went just the teensiest bit gaga over WinCo’s fruit cake mix. Winco is not sonsoring this post, I just love this mix.
So moist and delicious and chopped into such nice little pieces.
I still haven’t used it in a fruit cake and I may make my Mother in Law’s recipe with the remaining container I have. In the meantime I am enjoying it in other recipes, like these cookies.
I used the Angel Cookie recipe as a base and added the peel only. The pineapple and cherries, uh, didn’t quite make it into the mix. Okay, okay don’t look at me like that! I’ll confess! I ate them. Sheesh, are you happy now. But, really they wouldn’t have been good in here unless they were as finely chopped as the citrus peel.
The cookies are nice and crispy with a citrus-y punch. And the chocolate is the perfect complement.
