Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone has a wonderful day with family and friends. I am enjoying Evan’s first Christmas and time with Chad’s family! I will post photos tomorrow of our day. I have another cookie recipe and this one also uses oranges. I had a few oranges to use up from my CSA box last week. The orange zest gives these classic cookies a nice flavorful twist. The recipe calls for 3/4 cup chocolate chips. I used a mixture of semi-sweet chocolate chips and chopped white chocolate. I really enjoyed the combination of orange, chocolate, and white chocolate.
The chocolate chip cookie was first created at the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts by Ruth Wakefield in the 1930s by accident. It is now the Official State Cookie of Massachusetts.
