I've made this cookie several times and everyone loves it. The orange zest gives it a refreshing flavor that the white chips compliment nicely.

These cookies are sooo good!! I've made them for parties and others have always liked them. I've also made a variation of them by substituting the orange zest for lemon zest.

I made these cookies for a party we had. They were amazing & a huge hit! Everyone loved them and wanted the recipe. They are especially very good with ice cream sandwiched between two cookies. Yum!

I made these for Christmas cookie plates, and I added chopped cranraisins and it was a hit. I plan to use next year for my cookie exchange.

I usually am not a huge fan of white chocolate but the orange and white chocolate just go together really good in these! I can't wait to make them again!

What a hit!

I volunteer at a local hospital and bring baked goods for the special nurses and support staff in two of the units. I was looking for something not chocolate and came upon this recipe. I don't really care for white chips, but I noted that the staff seemed to be enjoying the cookies even more than usual. I think the combination of white chips and orange flavor made these so delicious. Several nurses told me that this recipe is definitely a keeper!!! I haven't had a recipe yet from your site that hasn't been well received!
