White Chip Orange Dream Cookies

Let me preface this by saying that I don't particularly care for orange peel.  It's just one of those things my taste buds don't find as appealing as others.  So for me to even post this recipe is huge, but I have to say these are some yummy cookies!  The orange flavor is very subtle, yet distinct, and not overpowering.  I'd heard from my family members that these cookies were sooooo good.  So about 3 years later, I finally decided to try them.  They were worth it!  Add a bit of orange food coloring if you want them to reflect the orange delight inside.  I left mine "au naturel".  You'll be dreamin' of more...

White Chip Orange Dream Cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
3 tsp. grated orange peel
2 cups (or 12 oz. package) white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.  Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar in large mixing bowl until creamy.  Beat in egg and orange peel.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Stir in white morsels.  Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown.  Let stand for two minutes.  Remove to wire racks to cool completely.  Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Those look so wonderful. I love the subtle flavor or orange peel in cookies. I however, do not like marmalade. That is just too overpowering. A little definitely goes a long way with orange peel. Great cookies.
