Orange Chocolate Cookies

adapted from Baking Delights

A tangy twist on a classic recipe.  I love the blend of chocolate and orange.  

1 c Butter
3/4 c White Sugar
3/4 c Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla
1 Orange, grate the rind and squeeze in the juice
2 1/4 c Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
Dark Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream the butter and sugars, add orange juice and vanilla until light and fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Combine dry ingredients with the rind shaving and stir into the creamy mixture.  Fold in chocolate chips and chill for 20 minutes.  Drop rounded spoonfuls onto a prepared baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes until starting to brown on the edges.  They should be soft in the middle.  
Makes 2-3 dozen cookies
