aka ‘Orange Creamsicle Cookies’. I was googling for some summery cookie recipes and orange creamsicle cookies showed up a few times so I investigated further, turns out orange creamicles are a type of ice block – you don’t get much more summery than cookies inspired by and ice blocks! After reading through a few recipes I came up the recipe I’m going to share with you today, they are seriously delish and the touch of orange is summer in a cookie. The other thing to mention about these cookies is that they are ‘drop cookies’, so no rolling and flattening required. Easy!
