Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were the best cookies I've ever had. Beautiful mix of chocolate and orange, moist and chewy, beyond yummy! I did 2 things different from the recipe. I added the orange zest in with the egg and vanilla to allow the flavour to absorb more and at the very end I added a 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips.
