I love gifting homemade cookie mixes to friends, especially my baking adverse friends. When

doing so, I need to make sure it’s as easy for them to execute as possible. We’re talking just-add-water type of easy. And that’s what I have for you today. You start with one master mix, add some simple mix-ins, package them in charming jars and add a cute tag with simple directions.

Orange and chocolate are an underrated combination, but I’m determined to change that; beginning with these orange chocolate chip cookies. The soft and chewy cookies are studded with dried orange pieces and semi-sweet chocolate chips. One bite and you’ll want to spread the word too!

Seriously delicious chocolate chip cookies with orange!
