It is so hard for me to make “regular” desserts. You know, the basics: vanilla cupcakes. Chocolate cupcakes. Plain cheesecake. Chocolate chip cookies.

I feel like they’ve all been done so. many. times. Why add just another recipe?

But sometimes I get asked for a regular old cheesecake. Or a plain chocolate chip cookie. And I feel like I have to oblige a request, right? I figure, I’ll just skip photographing and posting.

But then the recipe turns out so pretty. And YUMMY. And I want to share it.

Like these Chocolate Chip Orange Cookies. Aren’t they gorgeous? And they are SO good – they are my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.

  4. I understand your problem. Every time I take dessert somewhere (like to dinner at someone’s house the other night) people are like, “Wow, how did you have time to make dessert?” and I’m all thinking, “How do you NOT have time to make dessert?” They’re doing me a favor by allowing me to bring dessert. Especially an out of the ordinary one. I don’t need that stuff sitting on the counter!

  5. I have a great friend who loves orange and chocolate together! She’ll love these! Going on over…..

  11. I’m going through a similar thing! So many other food bloggers post the most amazing classics — chocolate chip cookies, buttermilk waffles, blueberry muffins, pecan pie… It’s hard to come up with a recipe better than theirs. But I don’t know that I’d want to; I’d rather be one of the “creative” (aka crazy) bloggers anyway. Life’s more fun when you color outside the lines!

  16. Best Combination!! My mom would go gaga for these.

    I know what you mean… it recently occurred to me that I don’t have “the” chocolate chip cookie recipe for my recipe arsenal, or “the” banana cream pie, so this year I’ve done a ton of taste-testing recipes to get my favorites. Honestly though… I can’t wait to get back to making crazy things!

  17. What a fun spin on a good cookie! I can’t wait to try them! Thanks for sharing them at Monday Funday. Pinning to the Monday Funday pin board :)

  18. Hi Dorothy, I made these cookies a few days ago and my family and I absolutely loved them! I’ve been a reader of your blog for quite a few months, but this is my first time making a recipe of yours, glad I did. When the cookies cooled, they were still chewy, they came out the oven so pretty, and the orange has adds an addicting flavor to the cookies. After you eat one you want to eat another one and another one. So thanks again for the recipe and I’ll be sure to try out more of your recipes. You and BrownEyedBaker are probably my favorite bloggers, I love yourposts, keep up the great work! :)
