Preptime   1 hour

1 cups flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
Zest of 1 orange
2 sticks unsalted butter, soft
1 teaspoon vaniilla
1/8 teaspoon orange extract or juice of 1/4 orange
Decorative sanding sugar

In a medium bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, and salt. In a small bowl, combine sugar and orange zest. The best way is to use your fingers to rub the sugar and zest together and release the zest essential oils, youíre basically making orange sugar. Once the sugar and zest are combined, set aside. {This sugar would make a great gift all on itís own.} In a large bowl, beat together butter and orange sugar until pale and fluffy. Add vanilla and orange extract/juice; mix to combine. Add flour mixture in two additions, mixing until just combined after each addition. Form dough into a rectangle and place between two sheets of waxed paper. Using a rolling pin, flatten dough to ľ inch thick. Place dough in refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment or a Sil-Pat. Cut out cookie dough using a 2inch cookie cutter. Place on prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with decorative sugar if desired.
Bake for 18 minutes until edges begin to crisp. Removed from oven, and allow to cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet. Move cookies to wire rack to cool completely.
