Orange and Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies have a light taste of orange, and the olive oil highlights the bit of salt, making for a lovely combination!

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 9 ounces chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, whisk together, and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, melted butter, orange zest, and sugar, stirring until well combined.

Stir in eggs and vanilla extract.

Stir in the flour mixture until just combined.

Stir in the chocolate chips, then scoop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto the lined sheets, spacing widely.

Bake for 10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through.

Let cookies cool on pan for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
