Oranges and Cream Cookies

01.16.2012

Is it summer yet?  I’m craving the glistening suns rays warmly beating down upon me while I relax and slowly work my way through a generous scoop of thick ice cream… if only, for now all I can do is bake what brings the flavors of summer =).  These blissful cookies taste just like an orange creamsicle.  I made the chocolate chip version and thought, hmm I bet if I add in white chocolate in place of the chocolate chips it would taste like an orange creamsicle, and wallah it did!  When I said yesterday the Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies were my new favorite cookie, I was referring to both those and these =).  I couldn’t decide between the two.  And I will let you in on a trick to enjoy both flavors, once the dry ingredients are incorporated in, divide dough in half then mix 1 cup white chocolate chips into one half of the dough then 1/2 cup semi-sweet and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips into the other half of dough.  It’s a great way to enjoy two kinds of cookies out of one batch of dough.  I hope these cookies become one of your new favorite cookies too!  I know for me they are going to be one of my lifelong favorites.

If you purchase Orange Extract for these cookies you may also like to try Orange Creamsicle Popcorn for another great use of the extract.

    I can’t wait for summer but the thought of bees buzzing around everywhere and stinging me doesn’t sound nice, however :\ (but there’s ice cream! lol)

  • Anonymous: Tried these cookies yesterday! Great flavour but turned out crunchy instead of soft. Regardless, have already had three of my girlfriends ask for the recipe! Great work :) January 25, 2012 at 5:00pm Reply

  • Jaclyn: Anonymous poster, sorry they came out crunchy but I’m glad you enjoyed! If you bake them again I’d recommend baking for a few minutes less than you did before. I’ve made these several times and they’ve turned out soft each time. I think yours might have turned out a bit crunchy from being over-baked. I hope that helps =). January 25, 2012 at 9:14pm Reply
