1 C Crisco
1 C sugar
1/2 package cream cheese
2 T grated orange peel
2 tsp. vanilla
2 C flour
1 tsp. salt
1 (6oz.) pkg. chocolate chips—we traditionally use the mini ones for this recipe.

In separate bowl mix flour and salt. Add to wet ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. (They don’t seem to brown much).
