Dreamsicle, Creamsicle

For the most part, I'm done with the cookie testing and onto the cookie making (only 48 days to make 1,000 cookies - along with a million other things!). But with a Memorial Day BBQ to attend, I wasn't about to let a baking opportunity pass me by.

I needed something summery, light, something that went well with beer.
Enter Have you seen this website? Let's just say, don't go there if you're hungry.

As I was perusing for cookies, I saw the glowing photo of Orange Creamsicle Cookies by The Girl Who Ate Everything.

Talk about perfect for summer! Made with white chocolate and a nice orange flavor, they just taste like warm weather and relaxation!
(that's not too dramatic, is it?)

Perfectly chewy too!


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 (I used a little more ~3 oranges)
2 cups white chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

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

3. 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.

4. 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.

I wouldn't recommend forgetting about the container and storing it open on a porch overnight, but if you don't do that they should stay nice and soft for 3 days.

  1. After my boyfriend and I get married (Aug 14 this year), we're moving. But as soon as life settles into a calmer cycle...and after I've found all our kitchen ingredients, I am spending two weeks solid cooking everything on your blog and then making a ton of new friends in our new neighborhood with said deliciousness!
