Orange and Cream Cookies


If you like creamsicles, I think you’ll love these cookies. Orange and white chocolate are a great combination, especially in a cookie. I brought these cookies to a meeting recently and I bumped into one of my sons’ friends on the way home. I happened to have a few cookies leftover, so I gave him a couple. This 9-year old called the next day and told me that these cookies were the best he had ever eaten. Let me tell you, he made my day. He really did. In life it’s the little things and in this case the little comments that make all the difference.

These cookies are currently one of my favorites. They’re definitely worth trying.
