Three! Three Cookies!! Muahhaha! (best Count voice possible)

Our next installment in the cookie extraviganza is actually an everyday classic, with a twist.

I used the Tollhouse cookie recipe (doubled, as I tend to do for holiday cookies), but added pecans for the nuts, used chunks of Ghirardelli chocolate for the chips, and steeped the sugar with the zest of two oranges overnight before making the cookies. Needless to say, they are delightful, soft but not cakey, the orange kissing the cocolate and elevating them from after school to holiday fare.

Now if I can keep the roommate from eating them all before the holidays are here and gift baskets have been made!
