Orange-Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I developed this recipe after years of searching for a chocolate chip cookie that would stand out from all others. Orange and cinnamon are tasty additions.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch YIELD:18 servings


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, orange peel and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the chips and walnuts. Cover and chill for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  • 2. On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a lightly floured 3-in. round cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
