Creamsicle Cookies

I've been on a bit of a cookie kick I suppose. I made oreo chunk chocolate chip cookies, butterfinger chunk chocolate chip cookies, cream cheese filled snickerdoodles, and now creamsicle cookies! Can you say cookie monster?! These were super amazing and are one of my favorite flavor combos- no going wrong with orange and vanilla. I had many a bowl of orange sherbert/ vanilla swirl ice cream at Grandma and Grandpa's house growing up and more recently many an adult beverage with orange soda and vanilla vodka (try it- it'll change your life!). Plus it's a great, refreshing flavor for this killer hot summer we're having here in Houston. 109F? Seriously?! Her are the goodies:

Creamsicle Cookies (from A Bitchin Kitchen)

2 1/2c flour
3/4t baking soda
1/2t salt
2 sticks butter, softened
1/2c sugar
1/2c light brown sugar
1 egg
1t vanilla
1t vanilla bean paste
Zest of 2 oranges
1T juice from 1 orange
2 c white chocolate chips

Preheat to 375F. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanillas until thoroughly incorporated. Gradually beat in flour mixture until just incorporated. Mix in orange zest, juice and white chocolate chips. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and drop tablespoon-sized scoops of dough onto the lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool completely.
