Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

These look like regular chocolate chip cookies but with the added orange peel and orange juice they have a wonderful flavor that leaves people saying "what am I tasting in here?"

1/2 butter
1/2 cup Crisco
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
1 egg
2 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon orange peel
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

Cream together the butter, Cricso, sugars and vanilla. Add in egg and orange peel. Mix well. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Alternately add this dry mixture and the orange juice to the creamed mixture. Gently fold in chocolate chips. Chill dough about an hour. Create one inch balls and either place on cookie sheet or roll in sugar, then place on baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
