White Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
I combined a bunch of the suggestions and added my own twist and ended up with an orange-white chocolate pecan sandy. I used half powder/half soda; packed the flour; used butter crisco; added both orange and vanilla extract; added the juice from the orange I zested; used pecans; and cut the chips in half. What I did differently: I refrigerated the dough for a while, rolled it into balls, rolled them in sugar, and flattened them before baking. Mine took about 10-11 minutes to bake. I melted the other cup of white chocolate chips, added orange zest, and vanilla and orange extract and drizzled it over the cookies. I'm really happy with the results. I think packing the flour allowed me to add the extra orange juice and not have the dough get runny. The final result tastes like a very orange pecan sandy with white chocolate chips and the chocolate drizzle has a subtle orange and vanilla flavor to it as well. As a quick note, after refrigerating and because of the flour my dough was slightly crumbly, but working it into balls in my hands solved that problem. I normally don't like cookies that are not super moist and chewy, but these are wonderful.
