12 days of Cookies: Day 2 - Orange creamsicle

It's the Monday after a long and glorious holiday weekend.  The temperatures are in the 60s here in balmy Pittsburgh and Christmas seems so far away.  But, one look at the 10 day forecast and you'll see that winter (aka snow!) is just around the corner.  That means it's time to start your ovens and get to baking cookies!

The second recipe in this series is for one of Matt's favorite cookies and one of my very first original Katy recipes - the orange creamsicle cookie or, as Matt deemed it, the creamsicookie! 

Fresh orange zest and festive flecks of color make this an ideal holiday cookie.  It's light and chewy and will have folks thinking fondly of the oranges that used to appear in their stockings as children.  Plus, it'll be a nice break from the plethora of (yummy) chocolate cookies.  Get the recipe here!

  1. Hi Katy,

    I tried to find a way to email you but couldn't seem to find your email so I thought I'd try commenting on one of your great blog posts. My name is Veronica Kawka and I’m a Master’s of Professional Writing student currently working on a group project at Carnegie Mellon University collaborating with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to establish a Pittsburgh based food blogging community. We have been doing extensive research and happened to come across your blog. We were wondering if you would be willing to speak with us about possibly joining our blogging community and helping us create a network that could connect the Post-Gazette with experienced bloggers. We want to establish a mutually beneficial community that will attract a greater audience for food bloggers and ultimately create revenue for bloggers such as yourself. You can reach me by email at Thanks and again wonderful food blog!
