Snarky as a Shield: A Story

A Cookie Even Kendell Loves!

My husband Kendell isn't quite as passionate about sweets as I am. (It's probably why he can stay so skinny) He can usually take a piece a cake or leave it just as easily. He doesn't keep secret stashes of candy. And he never, ever gets chocolate-desperate enough to eat chocolate chips by the handful.

Last night, though, we met in the kitchen over the last cookie. He'd already had one (so had I....yeah, I totally had already had ONE). There was only one left. And he wanted it. That's how good these cookies are! (I ate the last cookie. I had to stay up late and I needed something to fuel me!)

Orange Creamsicle Cookies

1 C butter, softened
2/3 C light brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
1 large egg
1 Tbsp grated orange rind

2 tsp orange extract
2 1/4 C flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 C white chocolate chips*

Mix together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg, orange rind, and extract, mix well. Add together the flour, baking soda, and salt; slowly add to sugar mixture, just until blended. Stir in white chocolate chips. Bake on greased cookie sheet at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

*I only ever use Ghiradelli white chocolate chips because they are the only ones without hydrogenated vegetable oil. Which is evil, people!!!
