White Chocolate + Citrus Cookies

Orange White Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is a yummy variation on the traditional chocolate chip cookie! I loved the citrus in it, and if you bake at high altitude, like I do, the texture of this cookie works well, and the cookie holds its shape (that’s a big plus!). So, here’s a thought for your next batch of cookies. I know I will be using this recipe many times–we just loved them! This recipe comes from Six Sister’s Stuff, but I’ve changed the name (they call it an orange dreamsicle cookie–the connection isn’t right for me, but there you have it:)

White Chocolate + Citrus Cookie

2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
3/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 t. vanilla extract
2 T. orange zest (for me that was the zest of 2 oranges)
2 c. white chocolate 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 white chocolate 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.
