If you’re looking for an amazing cookie that just screams “summer,” you need to try these.
I love anything orange creamsicle related. Including the Popsicles, of course. And these were just so much fun to eat.
Plus, they were super simple, since I started with a box mix.
If you follow the directions on the box, they suggest adding the matching flavored icing to the cookies, but I tend to avoid icings that may not actually dry. Too difficult to store.
So I dipped them in white chocolate instead.
And to really get the creamsicle-flavor, I also added a cup of white chocolate chips to the batter.
If you were in a bind and didn’t have the time to dip the cooled cookies in chocolate (even tho it only takes a few minutes), you still need to add in the chocolate chips. They really send the cookies over the edge.
Above is a pic of the box mix that I used. Picked it up at the grocery store in the cake mix aisle.
But if you can’t find it in your local store, the Pillsbury Orangesicle Premium Cookie Mix is also available online.
Here you can see the batter with the chocolate chips mixed in.
Like little gooey balls of creamsicles……
It looks like I dipped the cookies in halfway, but the chocolate really only covers the top and sides – not the bottom. I didn’t want the chocolate overpowering the orange flavor.
