Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

The name of this dessert is somewhat misleading. It is really more of a cake. It's so delicious.

2/3 cup margarine
1 1/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
2 cups oatmeal
2 8 oz. packages of chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cream together the margarine, brown sugar, and the eggs. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, soda, and salt. Mix in with the creamed together ingredients. Add the milk, oatmeal, chocolate chips, and the vanilla. Mix well. Pour into a sprayed 9x13 pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Orange Glaze

1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
6 Tablespoons orange rind, optional

Mix together to make a glaze. Pour the glaze over the cake as soon as it comes out of the oven. I find that if you spoon it on, mostly in the middle of the cake, it runs down the sides, but doesn't pool up there. That way you have glaze throughout the cake instead of just on the sides.
