Creamsicle-Like Cookies

Remember those vanilla & orange ice creams on a stick? Well, theseĀ are like that with a crunch.

2-1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt (try to buy Kosher)
2 sticks butter, unsalted, at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup regular sugar
1 extra large egg, at room temperature
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tsp. grated orange zest (they now sell this in the grocery store spice section)
1 cup (big, giant handful) vanilla chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and set out the the butter, egg, and measured orange juice on the counter while the oven preheats. Give it a good 30 minutes.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until they’re smooth – takes about 2 minutes. Add the egg and orange juice and mix well.

Whisk or sift together the the flour, soda, and salt and add to other ingredients; mix well. Stir this into the creamed ingredients then stir in the zest and chips.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased, or better yet parchment lined, cookie sheet. Bake for about 14 minutes – they’ll be golden brown.

Cool on the sheet for 1 minute, then remove to cool on racks.
