Orange Dreamsicle Cookies


First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who emailed me about guest blogging!
It was a busy-bloggy couple of days scheduling and 
emailing back and forth, but I'm so thankful for all of you who are
willing to post! And I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. 
We filled lots and lots of spots, but if you're still interested in posting, 
email me and I'll give you some dates.

I had one of those days today where I did school all day, not caring one bit about my appearance.
I was sitting in the kitchen still in my jammies at 2 o'clock in the afternoon thinking to myself
"Wow. I'm so home schooled."
But it is indeed true, so I guess it's time to face the music.  :)

I love the taste of fresh orange in cookies! Wait, I take that back. IN ANYTHING!
Seriously. When I was juicing the orange for these cookies,
my kitchen smelled like… fresh squeezed Florida oranges. Yum. 
I have a recipe for lemon crinkle cookies {that I still have yet to try} but I thought I'd 
remake them using orange instead of lemon and adding white chocolate chunks. The cookie was super soft and chewy, and had little buttery chunks coming from the white chocolate. It. was. so. good.


Orange Dreamsicle Cookies
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. orange zest
2 tbsp. freshly squeezed orange juice
1 egg
1 c. sugar
1 3/4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1 white chocolate bar, chopped

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a baking sheet and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Whip in egg and vanilla, orange zest and juice.
Stir in all dry ingredients slowly until just combined.
Add in white chocolate chunks.
Drop by tablespoonful onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
