I love the combination of any fruit flavor with chocolate. These are super, unique cookies and they are pretty easy to make. Only makes 3 dozen, so you may want to double the recipe :)

Apparently I forgot to rate these after I made them, months ago. Sorry! These were very easy to make and were a big hit at the outdoor function that we brought them to. They have a wonderful texture and a subtle orange flavor that really goes well with the chocolate. Thanks for another great recipe, Karen!

Like other reviewers stated I changed this recipe a bit. First of all I used zest from entire orange! Secondly I increased the flour to 1 1/2 cup and lastly I used a full bag of chocolate chips. Like other people stated the cookie dose not bake brown but stays this odd looking blond color. The bottom browned quite nicely and as a result I only baked them for 10 minutes a at a time. They came out very flavorful. Putting it in my keep file as I will be making these again!

I just love this site! I baked these cookies tonight and I couldn't wait to tell everyone how good they are. I only made a single batch and my husband ate so many of them I made another right away. So yes, double the recipe. You'll know why when you eat one. They are heavenly good!
