Chocolate Drop Cookies

These rich cookies are my dad's favorites. The recipe is a very old one from my grandmother.

1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup solid shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. orange rind
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
2 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted

Sift dry ingredients and add nuts. Cream shortening, add brown sugar and then orange rind and beaten egg. Add dry ingredients and milk alternately to the batter, beaten well after each addition. (This means add 1/4 of the flour mixture, beat well. Then add 1/3 of the milk, beat well. Continue.) Add the chocolate last. Drop on greased cookie sheet by teaspoonfuls and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Frost with Buttercream Chocolate Frosting when cool.
