These orange creamsicle cookies are just as refreshing and delicious as the actual popsicle. Creamy on the inside and bursting with orange flavor on the outside, these cookies do not disappoint. Summer is almost over. School is starting and it’s back to the grind of early mornings, making lunches, homework and shuffling kids around to activities. I only have 3 in school this year, well two if you don’t include 3 hours of daily preschool for my 4 year old actual school. It’ll be a change of pace only having my two littlest girls home with me for a few hours every morning. Ahhhhh the things I can do and the places I can go are endless with only TWO kids!! Add the other three in the bunch and we stick out like a sore thumb and have rubber neckers staring us down questioning me if ALL five children are mine. Heehee Sometimes it’s nice to just fit in and get things done without the feeling of people staring at you like you are a crazy woman. These cookies, like my family, definitely stand out. They are actually one of the best cookies I have ever made. The creamy inside and chewy cookie outside both have distinct flavors mimicking an ice cold creamsicle popsicle. They take a little extra time to make than your average chocolate chip cookie, but boy are they worth it! I recommend preparing the dough and cream centers ahead of time. Giving them a couple of hours to chill in the refrigerator before trying to put them together makes flattening the dough and picking up the centers more manageable. Trust me. The original recipe recommended spraying your hand with nonstick cooking spray. I just found it to make a greasy, sticky mess. Drop 1 tablespoon size balls onto parchment paper and chill for at least 1 hour. I used a 1 tablespoon size cookie scoop to make things go a little faster. Take about 2 tablespoons of your chilled cookie dough and flatten out with your hand. Place 1 chilled cream ball in middle and fold all sides around. Roll into a ball. Be sure cream mixture is tucked well into the middle of your dough so it won’t leak out when it’s baked. Bake the cookies for about 10-12 minutes or until the tops of the cookies begin to crack. Let cookies rest on baking sheet for a few minutes. If you take them off too soon and place on wire rack the cream center will break through and leak out. Let cool completely before drizzling with white chocolate. Be sure to have a cold glass of milk on standby and enjoy!!
