Orange Creamsicle Cookies

Do you remember when your were a kid on those hot summer days playing outside with your friends? Running around, jumping on the tramp, riding your bike from friends home to friends home. Oh, how I loved those summer days and man do I miss them. The best part of those hot days was running to the freezer and grabbing a popsicle. One of my favorites--Orange Creamsicles! When I found this recipe, I couldn't wait to try it. And let me tell you...AMAZING! 

Orange Creamsicle Cookies

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange zest 
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 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. Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until golden brown around edges. (Try 8 minutes first-you don't want to over bake so they will stay soft and chewy!) Cookies will be plump. Cool for several minutes on cookie sheets before transferring to rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
