This recipe is AMAZING! Our church had a dinner auction several months ago and I "auctioned" off a year's worth of cookies (a batch a month). I made these in January for the high bidder and to quote their daughter: they are "freakin' awesome!" I used 2 teaspoons of grated orange zest and 1/2 teaspoon of orange extract. Worked beautifully. This is a new family favorite!!!
We added these to our Christmas trays this year. I only had one small orange, so I collected as much zest as I could and then supplemented it with a little orange extract. They were really delicious, and a hit with everyone. Thanks for a good one!
The cookies were a big hit! Very tasty..or dreamy!! I read the reviews before making and I took the suggestion of one just adding 2tsp of the orange rind but instead of adding 1/2tsp of the orange extract, I added the orange juice from the orange I used! It was fantastic! Brought them into work and they were gobbled up! Thanks for sharing this recipe! I think I'm going to try it with lemon this weekend! :)
I saw this recipe on someone's blog. I tried it and they are amazing! This is the same recipe as I used with two variations. I used 2/3 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup sugar. I can't imagine that it makes much difference. The other variation may make a bigger difference. I only used 1 tsp. orange zest and added 2 tsp. orange extract. I'm sure the recipe I used has a stronger orange flavor because of the extract. Either way, the combination of white chocolate and orange is amazing!
These cookies are brilliant, I used 3 tablespoons of orange zest. The recipe is so easy. Thank you Miss Diggy.
These are really good cookies!! A lovely change from chocolate chip!! I used the maximum orange zest & followed the recipe exactly - then at the last minute, I decided to add 1 tsp of orange extract. I loved the boldness of the orange flavour. These cookies are so easy to make & freeze beautifully!!
I found this recipe in an advertisement for the chips. Although the recipe said they are chewey, mine came out crispy, just like I like them! The flavor is subtle and wonderful. This one is going in my permanent cookie file.
I found the dough too dry, so I added another egg. It came out great! The orange flavour is just right, and goes great with the white chocolate. next time I'm adding walnut.
These very special cookies are going into my cookie trays this christmas. I made two batches and added 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips to one, both batches turned out great. Thanks so much for sharing ~Diggy~.
