White Chocolate Orange Cookies

What a great flavor combination that white chocolate and orange makes!  The orange flavor in these cookies is very subtle and not at all overpowering and it goes so well with the chocolate.  These cookies have nice texture that is chewy and soft in the middle.  These were a big hit at my house and did not last long!  I will be making these again soon!

This recipe is adapted from Allrecipes


1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon orange zest
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and orange zest. Stir the flour, baking soda, and salt together; mix into the creamed mixture. Stir in the white chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto ungreased baking sheets.
3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
