Ah, so I bought some white chocolate chips Friday…and needless to say, I was EXCITED! I mean, there are sooo many amazing recipes out there for white chocolate chips. There are a couple I’ve been eyeing quite a bit lately. This here is the first one. Now, I do believe I have expressed my thoughts before on how I feel about fruit in dessert. Chocolate covered strawberries are really where it begins and ends with muah. Yeah, well…I’m not even a big fan of oranges either. However, I do love those Orange Dreamsicle Pops. Mmm, Summer yummies. So this recipe kinda bamboozled me, I mean Orange Creamsicle Cookies, sounds pretty darn close, right? Well, just looking at the ingredients I should have known what I had coming.Gosh, I really sound like a primadonna. Maybe these will be for you! If you’re into this kind of stuff…
So just in case, here’s the recipe!!! But if you’ve only got one bag of white chocolate chips, I really recommend using them for my next recipe!
Orange Creamsicle Cookies
2 1/2 c. flour
3/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
1 t. vanilla
2 T. orange zest
2 c. white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Cream butter and sugars until light and creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth. Add in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in orange zest and white chocolate chips.
- Drop cookie dough onto cookie sheets. Don’t flatten the cookies! It will dry ‘em out. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden around edges. Cookies should be plumped, and NOT overcooked. Cool on sheets, then on wire racks. Store in airtight container.
