      recipe

      Ingredients:

      • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
      • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
      • 2 cups all-purpose flour
      • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels
      • 2 large eggs
      • 1 can (14 oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Sweetened Condensed Milk
      • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon orange extract
      • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel (1 medium orange)

      Directions:

      PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease 48 mini-muffin cups.

      BEAT butter and sugar in medium mixer bowl until creamy. Add flour; beat until mixture is evenly moist, crumbly and can be formed into balls. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Press each ball onto bottom and up side of prepared muffin cups to form wells. Place 5 morsels in each cup.

      BEAT eggs in medium bowl with wire whisk. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and orange extract. Spoon almost a measuring tablespoon of mixture into each muffin cup, filling about 3/4 full.

      BAKE for 15 to 17 minutes or until centers are puffed and edges are just beginning to brown. Upon removing from oven, gently run knife around each cup. While still warm, top each cup with 8 to 10 morsels (they will soften and retain their shape). Cool completely in pans on wire racks. With tip of knife, remove cookie cups from muffin pans. Top with grated orange peel just before serving. Store in covered container in refrigerator.

      TIPS:
      • Love lemon but not crazy about orange? Simply substitute lemon extract for the orange extract and use grated lemon peel (2 lemons needed).
      • For another variation of this recipe, try substituting 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) of NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels for the Premier White Morsels.

        Zesty Orange Cookie Cups

        Cindy Kunzer from Barrington, NJ

        I tweaked this recipe a bit: I prepared a pouch of Sugar Cookie Mix according to directions, then added the orange extract and white chocolate chips. Pressed the dough into an 8x8 pan and baked at 350 for 35 minutes. WONDERFUL! I love recipes that you can play with and personalize.

        Great cookie "cups"

        LYNN BORG from Encinitas, CA

        Loved this recipe - like tiny cup cakes and they were fun! I only used 3 - 4 white chips on top so they were much better and not as sweet. These are a great "spring" treat.

        ALLISON SILVERWOOD from CHARLOTTETOWN, PE

        I actually found this recipe from another site that linked to here. They had posted it slightly different. I used orange oil and semi-sweet chocolate chips in the filling. I made a large tart version and it was gone before it cooled.

        Love Lemon

        Jackie Wilkinson from Willard, OH

        I put this on my favorites list and would try them both with the organge and lemon. I bet fresh blueberries with the lemon would be good also.

        Awesome Cookies!

        Kathy Korber from West Newton, Pennsylvania

        Made these cookies today, they are awesome! I rate them one of my favorite cookies! Very Good! Now I can't wait to try them with the lemon, and the chocolate chips, I bet they are just as good as the orange ones. My 33 year old son ate them as fast as they came out of the oven! They will be added to my Christmas cookie list.

        Better Yet...

        Barbara Wertz from Sewell, NJ

        These are yummy with white chocolate but, better yet, use milk or dark chocolate chips (that's what we call "morsels" in my neighborhood.) Chocolate and orange go so well together that I like to use a lot of each.

      •  Star(s)

        Excellent, with some variations

        LOIS MORGAN from Gillette, WY

        These cookies sound easy to make but I'd use choc. chips instead of the white, and would not use the orange or lemon as we don't care for that. I'd use a cookie sheet & bake them as cookies instead of in a muffin tin. Another variation would be when cookies are almost done, put a few minature marshmellows on top & then, add the choc. chips then finish baking them when the goody's on top are melted. My hubby would love these,that way!

        sounds yummy

        Zesty Lemon Cookie Cups

        Beverly Holton from Capitol Heights, MD

        Have made these cookies (with lemon instead of orange) 3 times since I discovered this recipe 2 weeks ago. Made them for a party as cups, and as bars for the office. They were a huge hit, with requests for the recipe and to make again!! Cuter as cookie cups, but easier for a large crowd as bars. (Also called "Tassies".)
