Ingredients Needed For Our Orange Creamsicle Cookies:
- All-purpose flour
- Baking soda
- Brown sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Orange zest
- White chocolate chips
How To Make Our Orange Creamsicle Cookies:
Begin making these delicious creamsicle cookies by preheating the oven to 375 degrees.
Then in a small mixing bowl combine together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set these aside to use later.
Now, in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, cream together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter until they are nice and smooth.
Then add in the egg and vanilla extract and continue mixing everything together until they are completely incorporated.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients (aka the sugar and butter mixture).
Once all of the flour mixture has been added, stir in the orange zest and the white chocolate chips.
Now, use a spoon and drop the cookie dough by the spoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
NOTE: There is no need to flatten these cookies as they will spread a tiny bit on their own, but most importantly flattening them will dry the cookies out.
Then, place the cookie sheet in the preheated oven, and let the cookies bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges begin to turn a light golden brown.
Be careful to not over cook the cookies. They will not spread out as much as normal cookies, they will remain pretty plump.
When the cookies are done, pull them out of the oven and let them cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes and then move them to a cooling rack to allow the cookies to cool off completely.
Then, store whatever cookies you don’t eat in an airtight container.
Warning: You might not need the container. 😉

Questions & Reviews
I found that just 2 oranges' zest wasn't enough for me, so I zested 4 oranges and squeezed one orange into the batter. I didn't add quite enough flour to thicken it back up, so the cookies spread out a lot and looked funny, but they were still delicious!
