Very Good. I used 1/2 chocolate chips and !/2 white chips. The orange flavor is subtle, but it's there. A very tasty cookie.

I didn't have any oranges so I just used 1/2 tsp orange extract. They are very good cookies!

I found this recipie a few years ago. Now it is required at christmas as it is my daughters favorite. I have used food coloring to change the color.

Wonderful recipe! It reminds us of going to Borders a long time ago and eating the lemon/white chocolate cookies! The orange flavor was not very present in these cookies, which is why it reminded us more of lemon! Still, a great recipe! All of the cookies were gone three hours after I made them!

I used extra fresh orange zest and found that it was still lacking orange flavor in my judgement. So I added 2Tb fresh orange juice and 2Tb flour. It was better. When I make them again I think I'd use white chocolate chunks instead of chips to make them a little more special.

These are wonderful. Lots of flavor, and mix up quickly. Took them to work, and came home with an empty plate!
