These are some of the greatest cookies I've ever tasted. The combo of orange and white chocolate were meant to be. I was so pleasantly surprised at how much they tasted like a real creamsicle too. Mmmmm! We loved them right out of the oven, and after they had cooled down. They practically melt in your mouth. This recipe is going in my 'amazing cookie' file!
