Double chocolate orange cookies

I am planning to make these today and thought I'd post the recipe. Sometimes the dough is a little dry after everything is mixed up and I just add a Tablespoon or two of milk. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup Cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.) chocolate chips
  • zest & juice of one large orange
PREHEAT oven to 350 F.

COMBINE flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Add orange juice and zest mixing until well incorporated. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chunks. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until cookies are puffed and centers are set but still soft. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

I'm not crazy about fruit with my chocolate (except cherries) but DH goes bonkers for chocolate and orange. When he's ready to cheat on his diet, I'll make him these. Thanks!
