Wonderful cookies with a dark chocolate drizzle on top. Very nice for the holidays - the orange zest is what makes them great. A little high in calories, but butter substitute could probably be used to bring down the count. Adapted from a recipe from Allrecipes.com called Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
