Changing it Up – Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

February 19, 2015

Just a quick note. I have a recipe to share with you.

A while back, we had the good fortune of gleaning some oranges. We ate some, canned some, and dried some. I was a little unsure what I would do with the dried oranges, but needed to get them preserved. Later I tried dipping them in chocolate, which is a great treat by itself, but I wanted to capture that chocolate/orange taste in a more subtle way.

Orange Choc Chip Cookies

These are lovely warm, but the orange taste really comes out when they are cool! Enjoy!

Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies:

2/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 TBS vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tea baking soda
1 tea salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (darker is better!)
1/2 cup chopped dried oranges

Cream the first 6 ingredients, mix in the dry – add in the chips and orange last.

Bake at 375 on ungreased cookie sheets until the cookies are done the way you like them!

I think other dried fruits will be equally tasty in this recipe and hope to try them soon. If you do, please let me know how they come out!
