Chocolate chips and Orange Cookies

After seeing Daily DeliciousChocolate chips and Orange Cookies, I knew I have to bake these.  Since I don’t have orange extract and in the fridge sitting quietly, I have a bottle of cold pressed Yuzu Oil.  This oil was a gift and it was 100% pure oil.  The smell while creaming the batter and during baking was totally awesome!

Unfortunately, dark brown sugar was the culprit of these very ugly cookies.  Please don’t let it fool you for it is very good.  How can you go wrong with chocolate and orange, right?

Verdict: The cookie is very fragrant.  The yuzu really came through.  The orange peel actually added a little chewiness to the cookie but overall, I think this is a crispy cookie.

I have modified it a little to make it less sweet as there are chocolate chips in it.

Happy Monday!
