Mandarin Orange White Chocolate Chip Cookies

To start things off this year, I am sharing my recipe for Mandarin Orange White Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Which are a personal favorite of mines since I like the dried orange bits so much.

You can find the dried oranges in  places that have a variety of dried fruits available. Such as Trader Joe’s. They  have a chewy  texture  similar to raisins.

The white  chocolate chips pair perfectly,  offering a wintry citrus flavor component to this cookie jar favorite.
