These are pretty magnificent if you ask me. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous and there's nothing like citrus in the summertime. My daughter looked cute in her apron as she made them (it's so nice when they get older and you can put them to work!). She did inform me my blog looks rather boring and needs a new look. Maybe she can help me.
2 1/2 cups unsifted flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest (colored part only)
2 cups (12 ounces) Guittard Choc-Au-Lait Vanilla Milk Chips
Preheat oven to 357. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light. Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture until combined. Stir in orange zest and chips.
Roll into balls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake about 10 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Cool for several minutes on sheets before transferring to rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
Note: for lemonbursts substitute lemon zest for orange zest
