Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm on a bit of an orange and chocolate kick after those dark chocolate orange brownies, so I thought I might give baking orange and chocolate into cookies a try. Out came some fairly delicious cookies... if I do say so myself.

These orange chocolate chip cookies have a refreshing orange flavor and are very moist inside. They are a perfect treat for a sunny day at the park (or for me, sitting at my desk!) and would make a lovely picnic snack.


– I freshly squeezed an orange for the juice, but you can use ready made orange juice and it works just as well.
