Chocolate Orange Cookie Recipe


If you love the taste of chocolate and orange, then this cookie is definitely for you. I wanted to experiment adding an orange flavor to my favorite chocolate drop cookies. I am happy to report that I was successful. These cookies are awesome! These cookies will soon disappear.
So here is the recipe:
2/3 cup butter (I use 1/3 shortening and 1/3 cup butter)
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
1 egg
juice of an orange, add enough milk to make 1/3 cup
zest of an orange, about 1-2 tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chip (it is optional, but I would add them)

Preheat oven 350 degrees Mix butter, sugar, egg, orange zest. Mix the dry ingredients. Add milk, juice, dry ingredients, and chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheet, bake 8-10 minute or until done.
