4 dozen cookies
000 Ratings


3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1/3 cup orange juice
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips


Heat oven to 375°F. Combine sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add sour cream, orange juice and egg; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, orange peel, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Beat until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown.

TIP: For the freshest orange flavor, grate only the bright orange portion of the orange peel. The thick white membrane, or pith, is bitter tasting. Leftover orange peel can be placed in a resealable plastic food bag and frozen for up to 2 months. The rinds can be run through the garbage disposal lending a fresh citrus scent.
