“Philly” Orange Creme Sugar Cookies

One of my favorite Christmas cookies is my grandmother’s “philly” sugar cookies. Yes, I do realize it is long past Christmas, but that doesn’t mean I can’t play around with a recipe, right? So here we are…”philly” sugar cookies flavored with a Duncan Hines Frosting Creations ‘orange creme’ packet. As if these cookies didn’t already taste amazing, I drizzled them with plenty of rich melted white chocolate. The results are incredibly delicious treats reminiscent of orange creamsicle bars.
