I have loved these cookies for a long time. I think the original recipe is actually from Tollhouse — not their regular chocolate chip cookie recipe — this one is a little different, but I couldn’t find it anywhere in the internet world after a quick search. Which I can’t believe! This cookie recipe should be far more popular and accessible than it is. I really had to dig around in my many, many photo albums of recipe clippings to find these.

I changed up a few things anyway. I made them chewier. Chewy cookies are all the rage these days, don’t cha know? Errrrbody wants their cookies soft and chewy, and I’m really no exception. A few minor adjustments to the original recipe, and these cookies are extra chewy. More rich too.

I also swapped out orange extract for orange zest. Obviously the flavor is much fresher and not artificial with orange zest. The cookies are even better on the second day, once the zest has had the chance to meld with the other flavors and to settle into the dough.

I, for one, love orange stuff. Any orange desserts. And I love orange creamsicle stuff even more than just orange on its own. Like, orange creamsicle specifically. It’s a flavor that I particularly love. It has to feature that combination of orange and vanilla cream.

Isn’t there something about orange creamsicle that’s a little nostalgic? Takes me back to summers as a kid, eating the popsicles. I think that’s what it is.

These are a fabulous cookie for spring and summer. I think of orange creamsicle as a summer thing, for sure. Light, refreshing, citrusy, creamy, and dreamy. Chewy and buttery cookies, loaded with orange zest, and bursting with fresh citrus flavor, dotted with creamy white chocolate chips!
