Chocolate Chip Orange Oatmeal Cookies

You might call these Slightly Adult cookies as they have a taste that is a bit more sophisticated. I made 3 batches for neighbors Welcome Home Tea (She has been in the hospital). The 4 kids seemed to think they were ok and preferred other items while the adults cleaned up the tray. I used Bittersweet chocolate.

Fabulous cookie - i just love oats - I had to use lemon zest as someone ate the orange I had put aside to zest - it was specially chosen for its lovely blemish free skin too - but the lemon worked so well and they are pretty addictive - so I will do them again and this time I'll hide the orange !!!! Thanks to Annacia.
