Hi everyone! Today's recipe is one of my favorite cookies: "Orange Chocolate Chips Cookies!" I never thought orange and chocolate would work so great together! If you havent' try this combo, you should definitely give it a try, it is awesome!

  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Zest of one orange
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1½ teaspoon orange extract.

Preheat oven to 350°F (180ºC)

Mix flour, baking soda and salt, mix well and set aside.

In an electric mixer, at medium speed,  combine the granulated sugar and brown sugar and orange zest for about 1 minute or until well combined.

Add in the butter and mix at medium speed for about 2 more minutes or until creamy.  Reduce the speed to medium low, and add the eggs one at a time, blend each egg for about 30 seconds before adding the second one.  After the eggs, add  in the orange extract,  blend at high speed for about 2 minutes or until the butter mixture becomes light and fluffy.

Reduce the speed to low and add the flour all at once, also add the chocolate chips and mix at very low speed for about 30 seconds, just to bring all the ingredients together, DO NOT OVER MIX!

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop 1 tablespoon of the dough to make the cookies.

Make sure to drop each cookie about 2 inches apart from each other so they wont melt into one another while in the oven.

Bake at 350°F (180ºC)  for about 18-20  minutes or until they are slightly brown.

As soon as they come out of the oven transfer to a cold surface.

And that is it! Enjoy with a cup of milk!
