12 Days of Cookies! Day 8: Creamsicle Cookies

Oddly enough, the first time I made these cookies was on national Creamsicle day! I know, I know there is some kind of holiday celebrated everyday of the year, but it was a pure coincidence that I made those that day, or is it? I’ll never know, but what I do know is that these are darn tasty! I wasn’t really sure how well these would turn out, honestly I never really cared for creamsicles before. I originally made them for a friend who was coming back into town, and I have this thing about tasting whatever I give out to someone. I just have a fear that if I don’t taste it and there maybe something a little off. Needless to say I was surprised when I had to stop myself from eating these! The original place I saw the recipe was at Baked Perfection
