From My College Kitchen: Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies


One of my all time favorite sights and sounds is my mama's kitchen around this time of year. I love seeing the messy kitchen as Christmas cookies and candies are being made, the smell of yummy goodness coming from the oven, and the sound of Christmas music playing in the house with the sound of the mixer in the background. 
Is there anything better than when the smell of cookies fills the house? Especially when you can tell they are your absolute favorite cookies!
Today, I am sharing my families absolute favorite Christmas cookies. It is my Grandma Miller's recipe and it's to die for. 
If you like Milano's Orange Chocolate cookies than you will love these! They stay moist for weeks...if they last that long.

  1. These sound super yummy! I made some chocolate orange cupcakes, been in the mood for oranges lately for some reason so I'll have to give these cookies a try! I know what you mean about the smells and sounds. I always think of my parents house at Christmas and the smells that always came from my mom's kitchen.
