White Chocolate with Orange Cookies

When I make cookies I tend to make either chocolate chip or peanut butter.  This weekend I decided to make a recipe that I haven’t made in a long while.  White Chocolate with Orange Cookies are a mouth watering cookie, much enjoyed by us and a few of our friends.

**(See below for an easy to print recipe.)**
