If you find that you do not like these cookies I would consider having your taste buds examined...something might be wrong with you! ;) So here's the simplest recipe that makes the best cookie you may ever put in your mouth. Okay I kinda like them. A LOT.
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 tsp orange extract
2 tablespoons orange zest (about 2 oranges)
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and creamy. Beat in egg, orange extract and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture until combined. Stir in orange zest and white chocolate chips.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Do not flatten cookies; it will make them dry. Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Do not overcook! Cookies will be plump. Cool for several minutes on cookie sheets before transferring to rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container. EAT!!
