The recipe is thanks to the-girl-who-ate-everthing.com. I don’t know her but I’m certain I would like her. She sounds like someone I could be friends with. 🙂
Orange Creamsicle Cookies
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 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange zest (for me that was the zest of 2 oranges)
2 cups white chocolate chips
Cream the butter and sugars together. Add the egg and vanilla and blend in well. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and slowly add to the creamed mixture. Beat in till just blended. Add chips and zest.
With a cookie scoop, drop the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Do NOT flatten the dough. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until barely brown on the edges. Cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
This recipe would HAVE to be doubled for this bunch and I will use a larger scoop for larger cookies next time around. These were 2″ in diameter with a yield of 36 cookies.
I’m telling you…these explode in your mouth!!! They. Are. Awesome. Everything is AWESOME!! *somebody slap me now*
Note: no pecans were used or even thought about in this recipe…however…
