orange creamsicle cookies


I made these cookies last week as a thank you for some friends after their dinner party. While they’re not much to look at (they’re kind of boring and pale) they were really yummy to eat. I think that next time I make them, I will amp up the orange flavor even more with a little orange extract. They were pretty great with just the orange zest, though. Almost enough to make me love cookies again. 🙂

Orange Creamsicle Cookies
The Girl Who Ate Everything

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange zest
2 cups white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture until combined. Stir in orange zest and white chocolate chips. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Cookies will be plump. Cool for several minutes on cookie sheets before transferring to rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
