Use Christmas cookie cutters to make these delicious cookies more festive.


Orange Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp. grated orange peel
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 2 cups (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, orange peel and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Cover and chill for 2 hours or until easy to handle.

On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to ½ inch thickness. Cut with a lightly floured 3 inch round cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart on greased baking sheets.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
