White Chocolate Orange Creamsicle Cookies


IMG_9354

If you haven’t ever tried combining orange drink mix (gatorade, powerade) with flour, butter, and white chocolate than you better try these white chocolate creamsicle cookies! I have to be honest, at first glance, this recipe did not look too appealing to me. My initial thought was, “how could you even attempt such a disgusting cookie recipe?” Well, just like me, you will quickly find out that you are wrong. These orange creamsicle, dreamsicle cookies are delicious, sweet, and simple. I have to give a shout out to Denise Parker for enlightening me with this recipe. Not only did she supply me with the dry ingredients, but she gave them to me in a jar as a gift!
