Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Orange Choc Chip Cookies 4

I love the combination of orange and chocolate – it just works so well. These cookies are the perfect combination, lots of chocolate chips, a soft and crunchy cookie with a hint of orangey goodness.

This recipe is really easy to make using the basics from the pantry and one orange – cannot get much easier than that!

These are sooooooo good, of the first batch only about 10 made it to the cookie jar – the smell and taste ensured the visitors ate them warm straight from the oven!
