Orange Creamsicle Cookies

Is there anything better than an ice-cold orange creamsicle on a hot, summer day? How about a warm, buttery, orange creamsicle COOKIE on a cold winter day? It truly is the best of both worlds. This cookie is not shy, with a full cup of butter in it, but that just makes it even better. Full of fresh orange zest and white chocolate chips, these beauties are definite comfort food…

…and that’s not extra padding on your rear, it’s extra comfort. That’s what I tell myself anyway. :)

Orange Creamsicle Cookies

(Yield: 2 dozen)   Printable Recipe

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, slightly softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
Zest of 2 oranges
1 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with Silpats or parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine flour, soda, and salt. Stir together and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and beat until combined. Add flour mixture and beat on low speed until well incorporated. Add orange zest and beat to distribute. Stir in chips.

Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to drop in rounded spoonfuls on cookie sheets, leaving plenty of room between cookies to allow for some spreading. Bake for about 10 minutes until light golden brown. Cool about 1 minute on cookie sheets and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Eat, enjoy, repeat as necessary!

All my life I have loved creamsicles so when I spotted this cookie on, I had to find out what it's all about!

Carolyn Jung said...

With the zest of two oranges, these cookies must be orange-a-licious, indeed. Bet they make the house smell divine, too, as they bake in the oven.

I made these last night and when I was gathering my ingredients I noticed that there is no vanilla extract listed in the recipe. I did add 2 teaspoons, but wondered if it was just an oversite in the recipe? They are delicious and the orange is just right.

You are right, there is no vanilla in this recipe and it tastes just fine without it. But I'm sure the addition of it would be just as good too!
