Chocolate chips and Orange Cookies: My favorite combination of flavors.

Imagine you have a glass of milk in front of you and you can grab one of these cookies. Start biting and enjoying it slowly, I know you're very happy right now.

 I remember that when I was a kid, there was orange flavored chocolate that come in a from of orange segment and I love it so much. The taste of orange and chocolate always have a special place in my heart. 
I use this flavor combination many, many times but never made simple thing like chocolate chips and orange cookies before. The dough is simple with a hint of orange from orange extract, if you don't have orange extract you can use 1tsp of orange zest instead. Baking cookie is not hard, the most important thing is don't over bake it The cookie will be very soft when just coming out of the oven, and don't try to move it now, or you will lost it, let the heat that left in the baking sheet cook it a bit and let it cool on the baking sheet it will firm up. 
After eating one piece of this cookie, I have to say that I felt like eating orange chocolate, and I became a little kid again ^^.
