  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (12 ounces) white chocolate chips
  • Zest of 1 orange


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.  
  • Place the butter and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on high until creamy, about 3–4 minutes. Beat in the corn syrup, egg, and vanilla just until combined. 
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. With the mixer on low, carefully add the flour mixture and beat until just combined. 
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and orange zest. 
  • Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto the baking sheets. 
  • Bake the cookies for 9–11 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet before removing and placing on a wire rack to cool. 


Use a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop to scoop the dough—it keeps the cookies uniform in size and eliminates mess.
