White Chocolate Orange Creamsicle Cookies


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!

Makes 3 dozen orange creamsicle cookies



3/4 cup                           Butter, softened
1/2 cup                           Granulated sugar
1                                         Large sustainable egg, grain fed preferably! (Just joking folks!)
1 tsp                                 Pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups                     Flour
1/2 tsp                            Baking soda
1/2 tsp                            Baking powder
1/4 tsp                            Kosher salt, regular salt works too
1/2 cup                           Orange drink mix (the creamsicle part!)
1 1/2 cups                      White chocolate chips



  • Preheat the oven to 375 F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. (Why parchment paper?)
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy looking.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined (about 30 seconds) and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and orange drink mix.

  • Mix in the white chocolate chips until incorporated.
  • Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until light brown, let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, and then transfer to cooling racks.
