Dark Chocolate Orange Cookies – my favorite cookies of late! Soft yet chewy. The orange-chocolate combo is irresistible!
It took me three times to take good photos of these cookies. Ugh, the winter light… One of those things I loathe about cold season. The dark and cloudy days.
Not only was I chasing the light but in the same time I was running out of cookies because my kids keep sneaking in to grab one and run for it! It was a challenge but I think I made it. 🙂 And honestly, I don’t blame them. These cookies are so good! My favorite of late, actually.
Personally, I would add more orange zest and more chocolate next time. I know the cookie dough can handle it and the flavors would be even more pronounced.
Then the only thing left to do is to bake the cookies. I made one batch with freshly made dough and the cookies were puffy, soft and chewy. Perfect! I chilled the rest of the dough and baked it the following day. Still puffed up and chewy cookies, yet the edges were slightly more crunchy. I places a few chocolate pieces on top of the cookie dough mounds for this effect:
