Orange Chocolate Drops

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter (no substitutions)
12 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (16-ounce package) semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until fluffy.

Gradually add confectioners' sugar and egg and blend until smooth.

Blend in orange peel and vanilla, then add flour and salt. Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until set.

Note: These cookies are very light in color so don't expect them to brown too much (except on bottoms and sides.)
