  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 36 servings
  
     3/4 c  All-purpose flour
       2 tb Cornstarch
     1/8 ts Baking powder
     1/2 c  Unsalted butter; softened
     1/3 c  Confectioners' sugar
       1 lg Egg; separated
            =the white at room temp
       2 tb Freshly grated orange zest
     1/4 ts Vanilla
       1 tb Fresh orange juice
            Granulated sugar
            For sprinkling cookies
       2 oz Bittersweet chocolate
            Or semisweet chocolate
            Melted and cooked slightly
  
      Into a large bowl sift together the flour, the cornstarch, the baking
   powder and a pinch of salt. In a bowl with an electric mixer cream together
   the butter and the confectioners' sugar until the mixture is light and
   fluffy, beat in the yolk, the zest, the vanilla, and the orange juice, and
   stir in the flour mixture well. In a bowl beat the white until it forms
   soft peaks and fold it gently but thoroughly into the mixture. (The batter
   will have the consistency of soft dough.) Transfer the batter to a pastry
   bag fitted with a decorative ribbon tip and onto the buttered baking sheet
   pipe 1 1/2-inch lengths 1 inch apart. Sprinkle the lengths with the
   granulated sugar and bake the cookies in the middle of a preheated 350F.
   oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden. Transfer the
   cookies to racks and let them cool until they can be handled. Dip 1 end of
   each cookie into the chocolate and let the cookies dry completely on the
   racks.   Makes about 36 cookies. Gourmet January 1990
