You can’t have too many cookie recipes on hand, right??

These cookies have one of my favorite flavor combinations – orange and chocolate. The orange isn’t overpowering, but gives these cookies just enough to make you want a second cookie. I love using semi-sweet chocolate chips in these, but if you are more of a milk chocolate fan, I’m sure they would be delicious, too. I love the texture that the cream cheese gives to these cookies as well.

A winning cookie, in my book!

Soft chocolate chips cookies with a hint of orange make these a favorite cookie!
Serves: about 2 dozen cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese and sugar. Add in the egg and beat until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and the orange zest.
  3. In another bowl, combine the flour and the salt, then mix the flour mixture into the creamed mixture just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. The dough will be sticky. Bake until just browned on the edges, 12-15 minutes.

    While I like cookies I don't like making them…no matter how bad the craving is! I need to work on my cookie begging. 🙂

    Those sounds yummy. I recently made candied orange peels and I'll bet a little of those chopped up in these would be yummy, too!

    Thanks for this recipe. I changed them up a bit and REALLY liked them! I used butter, 1 more oz. of cream cheese (did a 1/2 of the cream cheese bar), added 1 t. fresh orange juice and the zest from 2 oranges. I added 1/4 c. more flour and they were awesome! Thanks for the post 😉 I will be posting about these cookies soon on my blog.

    One of my favorite things that I get at Christmas every year is a chocolate orange. However, i have trouble finishing the whole thing in a reasonable amount of time (I’m actually not big on just plain candy). Maybe I’ll do these cookies with the chocolate orange to finish it up. They look awesome.

  10. Oh I like the combo of chocolate and orange.. sounds intriguing.
