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.

Want the recipe? Head on over to Chef-in-Training. I’m guest posting for my amazing friend Nikki today. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this recipe!

  1. 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! 🙂

  2. 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 🙂

  3. 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!

  4. I totally adore orange and chocolate together, and these cookies look completely perfect!

  5. 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!

      1. Definitely! (And it means I don’t have to choose between Oreos and pretzels in my ice cream pie crust! 😉 )
