Orange Creamsicle Cookies

Orange Creamsicle Cookies
from The Girl Who Ate Everything
makes about 36 cookies

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 Brown Sugar
1 Large Egg
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Teaspoon Orange Extract
2 Cups White Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.  Set aside.  In a large bowl beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg, vanilla extract, and orange extract until smooth.  Gradually add flour mixture until combined.  Fold in white chocolate chips.  Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.  Cool for several minutes on cookies sheet before transferring to a rack to cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.

These cookies were an uphill battle.  I had to do some substituting because I ran out of butter and I realized in the middle of making these that I was being sloppy with the measurements.  Basically these had the potential to be a huge failure.  However, because I'm an amazing cook, they were infinitely successful!  And I know that when I make them again they will be even more amazing.  Also note my new stoneware baking sheet.  Now that I know not to stick stoneware directly under the broiler I think that we may have a long and happy life together.
