Recipe by HokiesMom

From the cookbook I received from my sweet friend, "A Chocolate Christmas" This is another great cookie recipe for the holiday cookie trays and has a unique flavor with the orange juice. I hope you enjoy them too.

These cookies make happy faces on everyone who tries them. They are yummy and sunny tasting with the orange. I got 18 but then I also got bigger cookies :D. Used Splenda brown for the sugar and 1/3 cup of chocolate chips but otherwise they were made as directed. As my over runs on the hot side I lowered the temp to 360 and baked for the full 10 mins. They came out gorgeous with a nice little crispness just around the outside bottoms, soft and almost fluffy on the inside. Houston, we have a keeper. :D
