Orange-Scented Chocolate Chip Cookies - by Summer
So here we are a year later baking these cookies! Like Lisa, my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe is Tollhouse. And also like Lisa, I was considering refrigerating these for a few hours before baking. I read Lisa's post and decided to just bake them right away. Personally, I would probably refrigerate them before baking in the future. Mine spread out a lot when they baked and I was hoping for a more dense cookie.
I also yielded between 4 and 5 dozen cookies (more than enough for my dad to sample some this weekend when he comes to visit) and they took about 11-12 minutes in my oven. I can't say that I overly enjoyed the orange flavor in these. I think I just love plain chocolate chip cookies too much. My husband agreed that the orange took away from them. I am interested in making this recipe, minus the orange zest in the future.
