White Chocolate Creamsicle Pudding Cookies

White Chocolate Creamsicle Cookies

One of my favorite ice cram treats as a child were those orange creamsicle bars. Several months ago I tried to bring that taste to a cake in my white chocolate clementine cake. This time I wanted to replicate the taste in a cookie.
Using my mom’s pudding chip cookies as inspiration, I substituted instant white chocolate pudding mix for the french vanilla pudding mix, orange extract for the vanilla extract, and white chocolate chips for the semi-sweet. I also added a teaspoon of fresh orange peel and some food coloring for the orange color.
These cookies are one of my new favorites. My family and I just adored them, and I ended up baking a second batch within a week. My mom ate hers frozen and she said they were great that way as well.
