Orange Creamsicle Cookies

These cookies were inspired by a pin on, of course. 
I wish I could make up recipes like this! 
Anyway, it was real simple to do, and they taste delicious, and the fiance approves!

Orange Creamsicle Cookies

By the way, I'm loving the quality of my new camera. It's really paying off. :)

Just so you guys know, I burnt my fingers pretty bad to take this photo. I went to move the cookie sheet and completely forgot it just came out of the oven, OUCH! 


For the recipe click here.

And if not, I'll add it for your convenience, and I am not taking credit for the recipe, just want to let everyone know. :)

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange zest (for me that was the zest of 2 oranges)
2 cups Guitard Choc-Au-Lait Vanilla Chips (I used Ghirardelli white chips)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture until combined. Stir in orange zest and chips.

Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Do not flatten cookies; it will make them dry. Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Do not overcook! Cookies will be plump. Cool for several minutes on cookie sheets before transferring to rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container.

The only thing different I did was used one orange, which was plenty, and to add extra flavor to the cookies I squeezed two slices of the orange in. :)

As always, thanks for reading!
