double chocolate orange cookies

This is a tried-and-true recipe that I love, as well as my friends, my boyfriend, and pretty much anyone who encounters them. For so little effort, they have a really complex flavor once all the elements come together: the cocoa powder, orange zest, almond extract, and rich chocolate chips combined into one cookie is heaven. And the squishyness that they have warm out of the oven is pretty sexy. Um… sexy heaven?

1 c. unbleached all-purpose flour (I used white spelt here)
1/3 c. cocoa powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt

2/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. non-dairy milk
1/3 c. canola oil
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. almond extract
2 t. orange zest

1/4-1/3 c. chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or you could spray it with non-stick spray).
Sift the first four ingredients into a medium bowl and stir. Set aside.
Combine the next set of ingredients (sugar through zest) in a separate medium bowl, whisking together with a fork. Pour this into the dry mixture, along with the chocolate chips, and stir it all up until well-combined.

Drop by tablespoons onto the baking sheet, giving them a couple of inches to spread. Smooth them out a little if you care about their shape. Bake for 11 minutes. Transfer the parchment paper to a cooling rack. (If you’re using cooking spray, let them sit on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing them, because they’ll be uber-smooshy.)
