These were lovely. Know that they are soft and cake-like but I found this was a good thing for us. I made half with chocolate chips, and the other I left plain but then frosted with a vanilla icing. My icing was about 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1T butter, 1T milk and 1tsp vanilla, beaten until airy and fluffy (add more powdered sugar if it is too runny). With the orange cookies it was like a cookie creamsicle. Wow. I honestly can't tell you which way was better. Mind you these cookies aren't terribly sugary so they might need the icing or chocolate for some folks. Definitely worth trying. Thanks for the post!
We have an abundance of oranges off our tree and I was looking for a yummy recipe. Found it! My husband and son were doubtful when they saw me making orange cookies with chocolate chips. They were pleasantly surprised at how good these cookies are...delicious!
How wonderful are these!?!?! Wow! I love the flavour of these! Instead of just grated zest, I did do some short little strips as well to add a bit of bite here and there. I love it. I also added in chocolate chips. How could I resist? These are the perfect cookie for "tea time". Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2008
I too love the combination of chocolate and orange and this was just perfect in taste. I didn't add the nuts or raisins, but I"m sure they would be equally as good. These are very tasty little morsels C.Q. Made for 123 HitWonders 08~
What a delightful cookie. The orange flavor was so light and refreshing - not one bit overpowering. I did add the mini chocolate chips as I love anything with chocolate and it was just perfect. My whole family loved them - especially the nice light texture. These will be a permanent recipe in my files! Made for 'Zaar Cookbook Tag 2008 and am so glad I tagged this recipe!
Easy to make and they were a hit with family. I used the juice from the orange when I grated it for the orange zest. I also used Splenda instead of sugar and egg whites instead of egg. I added walnuts and chocolate chips. Another cookie recipe that will be made over and over again. Thanks.
Wow! These cookies are great! And that's quite a compliment since I don't like fruit very much. I wasn't even going to taste one after I made them, but I'm glad I did! I don't like the brand of orange juice I bought recently so I'm trying to think of ways to use it up (and not liking fruit that's quite a challenge!). I enjoy baking cookies for my co-workers so I thought I'd give these a try. I had no orange zest so I put in about a Tablespoon of lemon peel and that seemed to work well. I also used finely chopped walnuts instead of raisins or chocolate. I thought I forgot to put in a cup of flour because the batter wasn't as thick as most cookie recipes, but it was thick enough to plop onto the sheet with a spoon and they turned out just like the picture. Incredibly easy to make. Thanks for posting!!!
