Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate and orange are a classic pair, and these orange chocolate chip cookies blend the two perfectly!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces (weight) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. In a bowl whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, orange zest and ground ginger until well combined. Beat in egg and vanilla extract; beat well until smooth.
  3. Gradually add in flour mixture; beat until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips and mix until distributed evenly. If time permits, wrap dough tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour up to 2 days.
  4. Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Line baking sheets with baking parchment or silicone baking mat.
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoons about 2-inches apart onto prepared baking sheets.
  6. Bake at 350-degrees F for about 10-12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; transfer to wire racks to finish cooling.
