Orange-Milk Chocolate Chunk Cookies


Pecans flavor these rich milk chocolate chunk cookies along with grated orange zest and orange-flavored liqueur.



  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, sugar, brown sugar, orange zest, vanilla extract and salt; beat with a spoon until fluffy.
  2. Beat in the egg, orange liqueur and baking soda.
  3. Stir in the flour, pecans and chocolate.
  4. Transfer to a bowl just large enough to hold the dough, cover and refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours or overnight.
  5. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat one or two baking sheets with vegetable shortening.
  6. Using 2 to 3 tablespoons of the dough for each cookie, shape the dough into balls and place one in the center of a cookie sheet and evenly space four others a few inches in from each corner.
  7. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the cookies spring back when very lightly touched. Do not over-bake or the cookies will dry out.
  8. Cool on the sheets for 2 minutes; transfer to paper towels for abut 2 minutes, and transfer to a rack to cool.
  9. Repeat the baking procedure, using cool baking sheets and lightly coating them with additional shortening for each batch.
