Chocolate Orangey Chocolate Chip Cookies

A mouthful to say and definitely worth it, 'cause these cookies are as tasty as they sound. It's that time of the year again, to bring out those cookie recipes and get baking in the kitchen. The joy of baking and the even better one of sharing these baked goodies with friends and family...a feeling of warmth and happiness.

Chocolate and Orange is a combination made by the food gods, a combination so exquisite that you just can't get enough of it!

Chocolate Orangey chocolate chip Cookies:

You will need

1 cup sugar
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 tbsp Orange zest
1 egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp Orange juice
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350ยบ F.

In a large bowl, beat butter till its light and fluffy. Add sugar, orange peel and the egg. Beat on medium speed till combined.Add the flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Combine to form a stiff dough. Now add the orange juice and mix to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips. The dough will be sticky.

With the help of a spoon, place small mounds of dough on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten to about 1/2-inch thickness with the help of a fork. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until sides are firm.

Cool for a couple of minutes on the sheet and then cool completely on wire racks. Store in air tight containers.I had to really hold myself back from eating all these cookies! Delicious to the last crumb.

The Orange juice make these cookies more 'orangey', so if you are not a big fan of orange flavoured stuff, feel free to cut back on the quantity or leave it out altogether.
