next up on the thanksgiving dessert list was my orange cookie cups

you need:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) white chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel (1 medium orange)

what to do:

preheat oven to 350° F and grease 36 mini-muffin cups.

beat butter and sugar 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.

remove from oven, while still warm, top each cup with 8-10 morsels.

let cool for 5 minutes then gently run knife around each cup. cool completely in pans on wire racks.

once cooled completely top with grated orange peel just before serving. store in covered container in refrigerator.
