My friend Brook showed up on my doorstep with these cookies one lovely evening, and I've been thanking her ever since. :) They are my new favorite cookie, and I love them just as much substituting the orange for lemon or lime. They are divine!!!
White Chocolate Orange Cookies
1 c. butter
½ c. white sugar
½ c. brown sugar
2 ¼ c. flour
¾ t. baking soda
½ t. salt
2 T. grated orange peel (about 2 large oranges)
1 ½-2 c. white chocolate chips
Mix butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in egg. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix. When you get a dough consistency, mix in the orange peel and chocolate by hand. Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool on a wire rack.
*You can substitute lemon or lime instead of the orange.
