Orange White Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Story:
Sometimes I just can’t let something go to waste—like oranges sitting on top of my fridge.  I just hear them calling in the middle of the night, “Lizzy! Lizzy! Use my wonderful, bright zest!  Share me with the world!  Don’t let me mold up here next to the cereal boxes…”

1 cup butter, softened
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
zest of two oranges
1 egg
2 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons malted milk (optional)
2 cups white chocolate chips
Yields: 35 cookies
1.     Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with parchment paper if available.
2.    Beat butter and sugars for 2 minutes.
3.    Add zest, scrape the sides of the bowl and let beat for 3 more minutes.
4.    Add egg and mix on slow.
5.    In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and malted milk.
6.   Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix only until combined.
7.    Stir in chocolate chips.
8.   Make dough balls the size of 2 teaspoons and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges start to brown.

    I really like how these sound. Did you use malted milk powder or did you have it in liquid form?

    I only have regular (black) chocolate chips, is that OK? Do they taste different?

    My cookies baked up puffy. I followed your recipie except the malted milk (didn't use it). Any ideas as to why? I like how your cookies are flat. Great recipie either way, thanks!

    Yeah, the malted milk powder makes them flat. It adds a lot of extra moisture somehow. I have added malted milk to tons of cookies, and every time they are flat haha. Weird…

    Made these with my son today in perpetration for a play date. They were amazing, going in my favourite cookie recipe collection for sure! I’m in England and couldn’t find malted milk so we left it out and they were nice and ‘puffy’ but we like them that way. Got the other moms all rushing home to have a look at your blog! xx
