 We must give a little shout out to Mr Demanding Pants, Brad. We served these cookies to some friends who then kept demanding that I post the recipe for orange creamsicle cookies. Here’s to you Brad! 😉

Anyway, I used to loooove the orange dreamsicle, creamsicle, whatever they are called, Popsicles when I was little. Then Jamba Juice came out with the smoothie and I loved it. In fact, last year when I got out of the hospital I was feeling a little hungry (that happens sometimes when you haven’t done anything other than throw up for months!)and the dr really wanted me to try and eat anything I could. So, off we went to Jamba. BEST. SMOOTHIE. EVER. I’m sure it was because I hadn’t eaten real food in forever but ohhhh it tasted good. I threw it up the second we got home, but worrrrtttthhhhhhh itttttttt!!! (Little one, you were worth it too.)

Ok, I’m off track, point is I think it’s delicious and these cookies do taste similar. I used white chocolate chips for the cream part of the recipe and they were pretty darn tasty.

How Long Will Cookies Keep In The Pantry?

Properly stored, fresh baked cookies will last 2-3 weeks in the pantry.

Are Oranges Good For You?

Oranges are well known for containing vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, helping protect our cells from damage.

Oranges are also a good source of fibre, B vitamins, vitamin A, calcium and potassium.

Are White Chocolate Chips Actually Chocolate?

Milk and dark chocolate are produced from various proportions of cocoa bean.

White chocolate contains no cocoa solids whatsoever.

White chocolate is made from cocoa butter, so technically, white chocolate is not really chocolate.

  • I love this cookie. It is rather rich, but you can’t hardly find recipes with such a good orange flavor. And the white chocolate chips complement that orange so well. Such pretty, soft cookies, and by NO means dry. I like not having to chill the dough, too. Thanks!

  • I am looking forward to shopping at the new Harmons in Farmington. I don't shop anywhere else when I am down in St. George. It is a fabulous store. Love your blog and wonderful recipes.

  • I love Harmons because they are so close to me and it is clean and friendly! I have only used the drive up and put your groceries in your car once, not sure why i havent used it more, but makes so much sense when it is snowing outside!

  • I love creamsicle, but alas Harmons grocery does not exist where I live. If you love creamsicle flavor, though you should try this flavoring called fiori di sicilia. I get it from King Arthur Flour and it smells and makes things taste just like a creamsicle. I love it. I add it to blueberry bread, angel food cake, anything. Yummy, and I am so making these cookies adding that instead of vanilla!

  • Hi, Carrian! I just subscribed to your blog and am so excited to get caught up on all the fun posts. I have never regularly shopped at Harmon's, but the one time I was there, I remember that they had a great cheese bar. Lots of great imported cheeses 🙂

  • My favorite thing about Harmons is the fact that I can drive up and they will load my groceries in the back of my car for me 🙂
