Before I talk about these cookies, can I just mention how difficult it was to get that darn orange sliver to balance on top of the cookie stack? I must have replaced it about 10 times while trying to snap a photo. Oh, the trials and tribulations of food photography.
I've had these cookies from The Girl Who Ate Everything bookmarked for quite some time now, and am so glad I finally made them. I thought that a recipe reminiscent of an ice cream truck favorite would be the perfect way to start wrapping up summertime, since it is (finally) almost over. It has been years since I've had a creamsicle, but the flavors of this cookie bring me right back to childhood.
Here's what you'll need:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
Zest of 2 oranges
1 3/4 cups white chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars together until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla until thoroughly incorporated. Gradually beat in flour mixture, being careful not to over-mix. Lastly, mix in orange zest and white chocolate chips.
Line your baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into balls, and bake for 8 minutes or until just golden around the edges. I got 29 medium sized cookies out of this recipe.
