A white chocolate chip cookie bursting with orange flavor!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 2 teaspoons orange extract
  • 2¼ cup flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the softened butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg, orange rind and orange extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, blend the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture just until blended.
  4. Stir in the white chocolate chips. Drop tablespoon sized balls onto prepared cookie sheets.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  6. Cool for a few minutes on baking sheet before moving to a cooling rack.
Notes
One large orange should give you a T. of orange rind. If you prefer, you can do 1 tsp. vanilla extract & 1 tsp. orange extract. I prefer the strong orange flavor so I do 2 tsp. orange extract.
