Using fiori di sicilia, an Italian citrus and vanilla flavoring, gives these easy drop cookies a subtle taste of orange.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl.

Step 2

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating well. Beat in egg and orange flavoring just until combined. Add flour mixture and oats; stir until blended. Stir in white chocolate and raisins. Cover and chill dough 1 hour, if desired.

Step 3

Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls, 3" apart, onto prepared baking sheets.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Step 5

Note: Order fiori di sicilia from or call 800-827- It's very affordable, and a small vial will perfume your kitchen for a long time.

realizing too late i was supposed to chop the white chocolate so i doubled everything in the batter except the chocolate chips and they came out great! next time i will cut the orange extract to 1/2 tsp as it was a little over whelming. over all very good i will make again!
