Today is my first day of the 25 days of Cookies series I’m doing. Every day between now and Christmas I’ll be sharing a recipe of a cookie I have tried this year with you. Today I’m sharing Orange Creamsicle cookies. I know that sounds like a summer flavor, but oranges are in season right now, so when better to make orange cookies? These were delicious! My husband wants more, but until I finish all of my recipes I’m not doing repeats. These Orange Creamsicle cookies are very easy to make. The most time consuming part was zesting the orange peel.
- 2½ cups all purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ 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 tablespoons full onto ungreased cookie sheets. Do not flatten cookies; it will make them dry. Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Do not overcook! Cookies will be plump. Cool for several minutes on cookie sheets before transferring to rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
