Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

 Ever get tired of eating the same old chocolate chip cookie. I do, but I love how quick and easy they are to make.  One of my favorite holiday combinations is orange and chocolate.  So I thought, why not add it to a chocolate chip cookie.  I took a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, and added just a few extra ingredients to turn it into this!  I hope you enjoy!
Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 C. All-Purpose Flour
1/2 t. Baking Soda
1/2 t. Salt
1 tsp. Cardamon
1 C. Unsalted Butter, softened.
1 C. Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 C. White Sugar
1 T. Vanilla
2 Eggs
1 T. Orange Zest
1/2 of a fresh orange, juice.
2 C. Milk or Dark Chocolate Chips

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Add all the dry ingredients together, flour, baking soda, salt, and cardamon together.  In a separate bowl, mix the butter and brown and white sugar together.  Next, add in the eggs one at a time, mixing until the mixture because light and fluffy. Add vanilla and orange juice and zest and mix.  Your batter may separate a bit, dont worry too much because it will turn out fine in the end.  Next add in the dry ingredients a little at a time. Last, add 2 cups of chocolate chips. Bake for 10-12 min.  The cookies shouldn't brown up, if they do they have cooked too long. You want them a little soft, let them sit on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then on a cooling rack until cooled.
