Intensely Orange Flavoured Chocolate Chip Cookies

It is amazing what a craving does to you. The other day I picked up some orange flavoured chocolate chip cookies by a famous biscuit brand from my local supermarket, it was delicious but I felt the orange flavour was not intense enough. So I set out to make my own orange flavoured cookies as most bakers do.
