Orange Creamsicle Cookies

I hope that everyone had a fantastic Easter weekend!  John was off all last week, so we had 9 beautiful days of family time!  It was just perfect!

For the past three years, I have hosted an Easter brunch for my family and my in-laws!  This year, I made these Orange Creamsicle Cookies, and they were fantastic!  If you like eating traditional Orange Creamsicle IcePops during the warmer months, then these cookies are perfect for you!  And they could not be easier!  In fact, they are CAKE MIX RECIPE #34!!!

Your Shopping List:
  • 1 box orangesicle cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter, softened
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips 
  • additional white chocolate for dipping the cookies 

Now Let's Make the Orange Creamsicle Cookies:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter, eggs, and vanilla
  3. Slowly add cake mix until a soft dough forms
  4. Fold in the cup of white chocolate chips
  5. Drop by the rounded tablespoon (I use a cookie scoop) onto ungreased cookie sheets
  6. Bake in your preheated oven for 9-11 minutes
  7. Cool for 2 minutes on sheets then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely 
  8. Once cookies are cool, melt your additional white chocolate (I used 2 cups of white chips - but you could use bars of white chocolate for this part) in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until just melted and smooth
  9. Dip half the cookie in the melted white chocolate and place onto a sheet of wax or parchment paper to dry 
  10. Repeat with all the remaining cookies 

  11. Allow white chocolate to harden before storing 
These cookies are so good for spring, and they are perfect for summer too!  If you don't want to dip them in white chocolate, you could leave them plain and they would still taste delicious!  They would look like this:

And if you wanted to go a little crazy and cover the whole cookie in white chocolate, that would also taste great!  But I liked the look of the half orange and half white cookie best!  

Happy Baking!
