Orange and Chocolate Icing:


In large bowl, beat butter with granulated sugar and brown sugar until fluffy; beat in egg yolk. Beat in sour cream, orange zest and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions to form smooth dough.

Roll by 1 tbsp into balls; arrange 2 inches (5 cm) apart on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 350°F (180?C) oven until firm and no longer shiny, 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool on pans for 2 minutes; transfer directly to racks to cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 2 days.)
