Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • Zest of 1 medium orange
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon  vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips, I used dark chocolate chips
  • Extra sea salt for sprinkling on cookies
  • Extra orange zest for sprinkling on cookies, if desired

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside.
  •  In a small bowl, combine granulated sugar and orange zest. Rub together with your fingers until fragrant.
  • Using a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars together for about 3 minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Form the cookie dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons of dough. Place on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with a little bit of fresh orange zest, if desired. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
