This is another cookie that made it’s way onto our neighbor goodie plates this year. I love white chocolate in cookies, and this is a favorite of mine. The orange flavor is just wonderful and they are always soft and chewy in the middle and crisp around the edges. Yum! I like them with pecans, and they are also great with semi sweet chocolate chips. For a nice change, I like to add some Craisins. Yummy!

We go through a lot of oranges this time of year, so I stock up on grated orange peel (aka zest). Every time we eat an orange, I zest it first. Then I measure out teaspoonfuls of the zest, dump them onto a small plastic lid, and pop them into the freezer. After about an hour, I take them off the lid and place them into a small freezer container. Then, every time I need orange zest, I just grab the container and pull out however many teaspoons I need. They defrost really quickly and it is so simple!
