If you are looking for a unique, delicious and straightforward cookie recipe, you might want to give this one a go...
Orange White Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe adapted from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
The zest of one good sized orange
1 cup white chocolate chunks (or vanilla, if you can find it...)
Preheat the oven to 350f. (Or, if you're me, to 349. The 5 button on my oven has decided not to work anymore. What an inconvenient button to stop working! Why can't it be 9???)
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.
In another large bowl, cream the butter with both sugars for about three minutes, or until smooth. Add the egg and mix well, then incorporate the flour and beat thoroughly.
Stir in the orange zest and the white chocolate chunks.
On a baking sheet (or two) put teaspoon sized balls of cookie dough. Leave enough room between them to spread out.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. I usually take mine out at 11. They will still be super soft when they come out but firm up after a minute or so. If you're worried, check the bottoms. If they're golden, you're good to go.
These cookies are so tasty...kind of impossible to just eat one...
