Orange Shortbread Cookies with Chocolate Chips

I've been baking these cookies for a very long time. The recipe is from the February 2003 issue of Bon Appetit. So I guess I've been making them for 17 years?!! Wow! These Orange Shortbread Cookies with Chocolate Chips are one of my (our) favorite cookies.
They use orange zest and orange extract so there's a terrific orange flavor. They're simple and quick to make and so very tasty. We use semisweet chocolate because that's what we always have on hand. Sometimes we've used dark chocolate, sometimes bittersweet, they all seem to work just fine. We don't butter and flour a cookie sheet, we use parchment paper or a silpat. 
The only down side is that the recipe only yields about 2 dozen cookies. It does not take the two of us very long to inhale all these cookies!
These taste a bit like Chocolate-Orange Milano cookies, only better because they're homemade and they're shortbread cookies.
