I love orange, it’s another one of those flavors that is just fantastic. My husband doesn’t love it so much. I think that I’m just a fruity kind of girl.
I’m also a little fruity.
I have friends that don’t care for fruit with their dessert. Which are you?
I got a new Bosch that I saved up my money for. It came with the cookie paddles and so I had to try them out. Also I told a friend I’d make some cookies for her.
Like any good cookie recipe this one calls for butter and shortening. Why not?
Add some brown sugar and you’ve got your self the beginnings of something wonderful. The secret to these cookies? Vanilla pudding mix. Makes them super moist.
Cream them together. This was made so much easier with the Bosch.
Throw a few eggs in, well don’t throw them in. You should crack them first.
Some baking soda, salt, and vanilla. My mom bought my vanilla in Honduras, claiming it was pure. I read the ingredients, that are in Spanish, yeah not pure vanilla.
Add a the flour. I keep white flour on hand just for things like this.
I added some orange extract. It wasn’t enough to overwhelm the cookies just give a slight hint that there was orange in it.
Add some white chocolate chips and you’ve got yourself a fantastic orange creamsicle cookie.
