Orange Creamsicle Cookies
Recipe type: Cookie
Total time: 
Serves: 30
Chewy orange and white chocolate cookies that stay soft for a whole week and taste like an orange creamsicle! The prep time includes chilling time - only about 15 minutes is hands-on time.
  • ½ cup butter, softened (I always use salted)
  • ¾ cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 Tablespoons cream or milk
  • Zest of one large orange (about 2 Tablespoons)
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips, regular or mini
  1. With electric mixer, cream butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla on medium speed until pale and fluffy, 4-5 minutes. Add the cream and orange zest and beat for an additional minute.
  2. In small bowl, combine flour, corn starch, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix just until combined.
  3. Stir in white chocolate chips. Let dough chill for 30 minutes (or longer) before proceeding.
  4. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Scoop dough by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet about 2" apart. Roll each scoop into a nice ball and bake for 8 minutes, until just set but still soft in the centre. Let rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to racks to cool completely.
  6. Repeat with remaining dough...I made about 3 dozen smaller cookies, but if you like your cookies larger you'll get about 2 dozen.
If you want to chill your dough longer or overnight, it will harden - either scoop it into balls and put them on plates or cookie sheets before refrigerating, or let dough stand at room temperature for 30-60 minutes before scooping into balls.
