Orange Creamsicle Sugar Cookies

Orange creamsicle sugar cookies with a white chocolate orange frosting!

Perfect for any day of the week.

We just celebrated Father’s Day yesterday and had such a great day.  We went to bed super late the night before so I was really surprised when I woke up to the smell of breakfast being made.  Our sweet girls all woke up early to make cards and breakfast for their dad.  They have such thoughtful hearts and I’m glad they did that for him because I was totally sleeping. Haha.

After breakfast we got ready and went to church and then spent the afternoon with Myron’s dad and family.  Any time with family is always a good time and when we get together with the cousins my girls never want to leave.

Later that night we had my family over for dinner.  We usually have dinner at my parents house on Sundays but figured we could give mom the night off too. We had brisket and these apple glazed ribs for dinner and realized later that I was in charge of dessert and forgot to make it.  Good thing we were all stuffed and didn’t want dessert anyway.  Besides, I made these orange creamsicle cookies and took them last week for dessert so we can call that a win right?

What did you do for Father’s Day?

If you forgot to do dessert like I did you can redeem yourself by making these orange creamsicle cookies.  They are amazing, not too sweet and the frosting is out of this world.

Be sure to save the recipe for later to your PInterest Boards.
