What’s a white chocolate-orange dream cookie? These treats taste almost like orange creamsicles — or maybe an Orange Julius-style cookie. The blend of the vanilla flavor with the grated orange rind combine to make an amazing treat — and a nice variation on the popular white-chocolate macadamia nut cookie.
Prefer your chocolate a more traditional brown? Simply swap out the white chocolate chips in this recipe for milk chocolate or semi-sweet chips, or try the second recipe below from 1994 for Chocolate-orange dreams.
