White Chocolate Orange Burst Cookies

For the last day or so, it's been all about getting ready for vacation around here. While rocking out to Kari Jobe, Ella Fitzgerald and various Christmas music, I've been cleaning like crazy, baking and packing. Is it just me or does it feel so nice to leave with a clean house? 

While I'm busy, trying to do the things that grown-ups need to do, the kids are super excited and bouncing off the walls. They're looking forward to the possibility of snow, the long days spent with their cousins and the hot cocoa that we my husband promised we'd buy them on our way down. I think he forgot about potty stops when he made that promise......

Today I baked a new cookie recipe for us to bring and I'm excited to share it with you all. I kind of fell in love with these this afternoon and I hope you will, too. These cookies are moist, filled with the perfect taste of white chocolate, followed by a hint of orange. I'm glad I texted my sister and told her I was making them, or else I might have eaten far too many.  
White Chocolate Orange Burst Cookies
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks butter (softened)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon orange zest
1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
2 cups 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. Beat in egg, vanilla and fresh squeezed orange juice. 
Gradually add flour mixture until combined. Stir in orange zest and chips.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for approx. 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown around edges. Cool completely on wire rack.

  2. Just thought I'd leave these cookies some love. They are delicious! I made them almost a year ago for a friend who doesn't like milk chocolate, but likes white chocolate. She loved them. So I made them again tonight (6 dozen!) for a Christmas cookie exchange. Thanks for a delicious recipe! :)

  3. Made these cookies about a year ago when visiting a friend who doesn't like milk chocolate, but likes white chocolate. She and her husband devoured them! So yummy. Such a great combination!
