Great Cookies

Easy to make, even if you make your own sugar cookie mix. This works well with other citrus fruits. I really liked it when I tried lime with no chocolate.

Great Recipe!

I tried this recipe for a cookie swap at work 2 weeks ago and it was a HIT!! I already had a package of sugar cookie mix so I just added pure orange extract and the Nestle Toll House mini morcels. I made some more last night for my family and they loved them.
