Wow. It has been months! I’m not assuming that anyone missed me but I did miss updating my blog.

Well, I have been baking. Actually more like tweaking my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (Marha Stewart’s Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip cookies). And one of the recipes I came up with is my Orange Chocolate Chip cookie.

It had a tangy taste that went well with chocolate and the smell is heavenly! I used semi-sweet chocolate with this one but I am more partial to bittersweet chocolates now. ūüôā

 

Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

1 1/8 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 1/4 tsp corn starch

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

1/4 cup white sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 large egg

rind of 1 orange

2 tsps orange extract

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and corn starch.

2. Cream butter with both sugars at medium speed until light and fluffy,

3. Reduce speed to low.  Add salt, vanilla extract, egg, orange rind, and orange extract.  Until well mixed.

4. Gradually add the flour mixture.

5. Fold in chocolate chips.

6. Chill for at least two hours.

7. Preheat oven at 175C.  Line baking sheet with baking paper.  Using an ice cream scoop (1.5 inch diameter) position dough at least two inches apart.

8.  Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are golden and center is still a bit soft.  Halfway through, baking turn the sheet 180 degrees to ensure a more even bake among the cookies.

9. Remove cookies from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 4 minutes.  Transfer to wire rack and let cool completely.
