White Chocolate Orange Cookies are going to be your new favorite cookies! Chewy cookies filled with orange zest and white chocolate chips.
You guys know my favorite chocolate is white chocolate.
ALTHOUGH. Have you tried those red velvet Kit Kats that are out for Valentine’s Day?! Maybe my new favorite candy ever. And I don’t ever like anything red velvet.
So white chocolate and orange are so perfect together. White chocolate and any citrus is delicious but white chocolate and orange is my favorite.
These cookies are fat and chewy and so loaded with white chocolate chips. You know when you get a cookie and there’s, like, 2 chocolate chips in it? And it’s the most disappointing thing ever?
Not these cookies.
I would’ve eaten the entire batch myself if I hadn’t dropped them off to a friend.
- Unsalted butter – make sure to soften it to room temperature before beginning the recipe.
- Granulated sugar
- Brown sugar – this recipe calls for equal amounts of granulated sugar and brown sugar which makes the cookies chewy but not overly so.
- Orange zest – this adds SO much orange flavor to the cookies.
- Baking soda
- White chocolate chips – I use the regular Nestle white chocolate chips for these. You can also do chopped white chocolate if there’s a bar you like.
How To Make White Chocolate Orange Cookies
- Prepare. Preheat oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Combine dry ingredients. Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluff. Add egg, orange zest, and vanilla; beat until fully combined.
- Combine dry ingredients. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt until no lumps remain.
- Add dry to wet. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until just combined.
- Add white chocolate chips. Use a rubber spatula to fold in white chocolate cihips.
- Shape. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets.
- Bake Bake 11 – 13 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Cool. Cool completely on a wire rack.
These cookies are good for up to 5 days. Make sure to store them in an airtight container at room temperature to keep them fresh for as long as possible.
You can freeze white chocolate orange cookies for up to 3 months. I would wrap a few at a time in plastic wrap and then place them in a freezer ziploc bag.
Let them defrost at room temperature for several hours when you are ready to serve.
