Polly's Chocolate Chip Orange Drop Cookies

This is one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes- its really quite remarkable. They are rather terrible for you physically, but emotionally... well
I make these every Christmas and whenever possible in between.

1 c butter
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 t grated orange rind
2 t vanilla
Stir in:
2 1/4 c flour
1 t salt
an appropriate amount of chocolate chips

Chill for at least an hour
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes

Christmas Spread

I'm beginning to feel rather silly that I posted no pictures of Christmas dinner. In my house we don't do the regular turkey shin-dig- we just buy a lot of fancy cheese and crackers and have ourselves a good old time. My personal favorite was the mango ginger stilton.
