These Orange Creamsicle Cookies are a HUGE hit at my house! A light orange flavor with white chocolate chips, makes a perfectly chewy cookie! Creamsicle cookies are a sweet and easy substitute for the popular popsicle.

 

My husband has been watching these shows lately about people who are preparing for the end of the world.

Doomsday Preppers.

Are you familiar?

They have like whole secret bunkers built underground filled with loads of canned food and cots and stuff.

Which, of course, got my husband thinking about what we would need to survive in case there is a disaster of epic proportions.

 

We don’t currently have any large cans of beans or dried food in our pantry.  We have no weaponry to shoot looters or zombies.  And we certainly don’t have a seed collection to repopulate the earth’s vegetation.

What we DO have is a rather expansive collection of nail polish, food photo props and People magazines.

I’m thinking I’m dead meat.

 

Here’s the thing, though.  If the world is dunzo, I’m pretty sure I would be fine going down with it.  I mean, there would be no internet, no television..no ELECTRICITY!  I lost power for a week last year when a hurricane came through and I have to say without power there’s not much to live for.

Plus, beans aren’t my jam, so if the zombies didn’t kill me I would inevitably die of starvation.

Orange Zest Creamsicle Cookie Recipe

What currently IS my jam are these cookies.

They’re good stuff.

Make ’em and eat ’em and don’t worry, be happy.

Start with oranges.  I’m doing fruit again.  Maybe the world IS ending?!

How to Bake Orange Creamsicle Cookies:

    These were loved! Thank you for this recipe. A note to others: I took the first batch out too soon, I think, they were only just starting to get brown around the edges. That batch was still delicious, but very crumbly the next day.

    Made these cookies just this afternoon….oh so yummy! I can’t wait for my husband to get home so he can try them too! Thanks for sharing!!!

    I just made these and they are wonderful. I made them into bars (spread the dough in a 9×13 glass pan) and baked them at 325 for 18 minutes. Perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  4. There were these orange cookies I loved growing up that I cannot locate to save my life now. I’ll have to try these to see if they are better (which I bet they are since they are not store-bought)

    I just read your guest post on Bakingdom and discovered your site… I love it! Your posts are hilarious! I laughed out loud at work at the picture of your husband wearing his workout vest. “Is this grounds for divorce?” TOO funny!

  6. Oh, come over here. We have some sort of emergency food kit. And big ol’ containers for water. Remember Y2K? I didn’t have to but toilet paper for 6 months.

    Does you hubby watch that show where people try to stay “off the grid?” Maybe it’s called Off the Grid…I have no idea, but I’m betting your hubby would like it. I always retreat to the other TV to watch my DVR’d Fashion Police.

    OH…and I’m so glad that cookies are “jam” and not beans! 😉

    I haven’t had a creamsicle ice cream in too many years to count. I don’t have chocolate or white chocolate chips but I do have cady bars that I can chop up. I can’t wait to make these. Thank you very much for sharing these. I was sent here through another great blog “Confessions of A Cookbook Queen”. I also plan on trying her Carrot Cake Parfait.
