When I saw a fresh fruit cart filled to the brim with fresh oranges and green leaves, it stopped me in my tracks! Have you EVER seen fresh oranges with leaves attached at the market? I'm sure they thought I was a nut case as I filled up my cart with dozens of these beauties...some to eat right away, and the rest to inspire me - but what to make? Orange Chicken - always wonderful, but I had promised the kids cookies. So Orange Milano Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies it had to be!
These tender and chewy cookies are so wonderful! The combination of orange and dark chocolate is something that has to be experienced - especially warm from the oven!
After I pulled these out of the oven, everyone came running. And after joyfully chowing down on the first one and reaching for the next, Noah confessed that he was totally prepared to hate these cookies - too weird for his taste - but he LOVED them! Just when you think you've had the best chocolate chip cookie ever, this zinger recipe will grab your taste buds. If you've never cooked with orange extract or fresh orange zest, you have got to try these! Warm, fragrant, chewy and wonderful - all rolled into one delectable cookie!
Can you believe the concentration on Little's face? He loves baking - and especially loves my kitchen "power tools" - he always coming RUNNING when he hears me cooking in the kitchen. Believe me, these wonderful cookies were baked with LOVE!
