Orange Creamsicle Cookies Recipe

 Most of my favorite childhood memories come from Summer!  We would play outside all day with our neighbors on our dead end street and when we heard that ice cream man come, we would run inside to get some change to buy a yummy snack!  I remember sitting on the curb in front of our house eating our delicious, frozen treats.  These cookies taste just like biting into a delightful orange creamsicle!

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

  4. Stir in orange zest and white chocolate chips.
  5. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Do not flatten cookies; it will make them dry.

  1. I made these last night and brought them to work. My fiance about wouldn't let me take them out of the house! The vultures, I mean coworkers, have devoured them today- I just went to look and there were 4 left.
    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!
