Take the time to make these Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies for your game day
celebration. Even if your color is NOT orange…these melt in your mouth,
fabulous cookies will add to your celebration, no matter who wins the day.
They are one of the best cookies I have ever tasted. They take a little bit more
time with the added frosting… but with every bite, you will be so happy
that you gave them a try!
