White Chocolate Orange Cookies

I made these cookies for my mother’s friend’s retirement party… twice.

You see, the recipe was supposed to yield 24 cookies, which was waaaay more than I wanted. So I originally cut the recipe in half, for a dozen cookies, in a normal cookie size.

Then I made mini-cupcakes and tiny little lemon cookies. The cookies looked GIANT, which worked out, because cutting the recipe in half was too few cookies… I know it sound like a lot, but these cookies are delicous and bake up fast.

I got the recipe from The Goddess’s Kitchen, but the recipe was in grams… I’m in college, I do not own, nor wish to own a kitchen scale. So, here is a fantastic cookie recipe – in cups 🙂

  • 2 cups – minus 4 tablespoons of flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups of white chocolate chips
