Hello & Happy Wednesday!!

 

 

 

 

 

As we start a brand new year, I figured I would get a headstart on one of my long standing yearly goals.. 

 

Which is to branch out with my recipes!

 

Although I cook full time, like thousands of others I typically reach for the same ingredients and take the same approach. Needless to say, I never explore orange dessert concepts. Perhaps it’s just not a flavor I crave or I tend to gravitate more towards other profiles. This is the literally the second orange focused recipe I’ve produced out of roughly 500, but it’s a good one! 

 

 

 

 

 


 

What I love about this recipe is that the all the components blend so seamlessly together. It packs a citrus punch, white chocolate, multiple textures, low sugar, aesthetic appeal, can be made in minutes, and is perf for those days when you’re craving that nostalgic creamsicle combo that’s embedded in your memory from childhood. 

 


 

 

 

If you’re craving a buttery soft cookie and that creamsicle flavor that will just never escape us.. You have to try this recipe for vegan Orange Creamsicle Cookies!
