These cookies are the perfect summer treat! The tangy orange with the sweet white chocolate is almost like a creamsicle! One of the best things about this recipe is that the orange flavor is all natural so you don’t have any of that funky extract after taste.
These cookies are also so soft and chewy, some people fall either into the crunchy cookie lover category or the chewy lovers. Which one are you? I can go either way!
I brought these to both jobs and only had a few leftover for us to enjoy! My favorite part was opening the tupperware and getting a burst of orange right in the olfactory sense! I just love making treats to share with my friends at work. I have one co-worker who doesn’t really like desserts and now whenever he hears I have treats is right at my desk curiously peeking in the box!
- 2 Sticks Salted Butter, room temperature
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 Egg
- Zest of 2 Oranges
- 2 Tbsp Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 3/4 tsp Baking Soda
- 2 1/2 Cups Flour
- 16 oz White Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 350.
In a stand mixer or large bowl beat the butter and sugars together until you have a grainy paste. Add the vanilla, egg, zest, juice, salt and baking soda. Mix until well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Slowly add flour, mix until well combined. Finally add the white chocolate chips and mix for about 30 seconds until well distributed.
On a large baking sheet drop small spoonfuls of cookies I did 5 rows of 4 cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are lightly browned. Do not over bake or else the citrus will burn the bottom of the cookie.
Cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and finish cooling. Store in a covered container if they last long enough 😉
