This is a Betty Crocker recipe that I found and made for Rylan’s 13th birthday. I made them to go with an orange dreamsicle cake that I was making for him. They were so good! I added just a hint more orange extract to give them some extra orange flavor and they became an instant family favorite.
Orange Cream Cookies
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) sugar cookie mix
3 Tbs butter or margarine, melted
2 tsp orange extract
1 tsp vanilla
5 drops yellow food color
2 drops red food color
1 ½ cups white vanilla baking chips
1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir all ingredients except baking chips until soft dough forms. Stir in baking chips.
2. On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough with 1 1/2 tablespoon-size cookie scoop or by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.
3. Bake 9 to 10 minutes or just until dough is set (do not overbake). Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely.
