OOO, the ORANGENESS of it all.....

 When I was a little girl in Dallas,

an olden truck much like the one above,
would come by our house,
selling ice cream and block ICE.

There were two kinds of ice cream that I always bought...


I still love both of them to this very day....
and especially ORANGE.


when I saw THIS on the grocery store shelf, you can bet that I bought TWO boxes.

I KNEW that I was gonna love these...

and I am SUCH a

My cookie making PEPPERMINT ANGEL and I got busy this morning
and made these delicious bites straight from HEAVEN.

They have tiny bits of orange all thru each cookie...SOOO good.....

and just delightful.

I also bought the ORANGESICLE frosting to go on these amazing cookies.

As most of these icings are a little TOO SWEET for my taste,
I added fresh squeezed 
to the icing and it came out just perfect. 

Bet you could use bottled orange juice, too.

Folks, if you like ORANGE flavor,
don't be afraid to buy this mix.

Believe me...they are delicious....
but, then again, I LOVE ANYTHING ORANGE. !!

I baked mine for 10 minutes, as the box states, and they came out light,
and airy and those bits of orange makes them delicious.

See how light and flaky they are...

I'm TOTALLY sold on these babies.

I hope you have an ORANGE DREAMSICLE kind of day.


  1. I haven't seen these here yet....I too love Dreamsicles and Fudgesicles. I can just taste them...yum.

  2. I love orange dreamsicles, too, which is why I love a mix of orange sherbet with vanilla ice cream. These cookies will be on my list...haven't seen them yet...may take until next year before they show up!

  3. A favorite flavor from my childhood, too. I just put it on my shopping list

  4. I was a popsicle gal when I was growing up. Mr. Comforts loves creamsicles. Your cookies look really tasty BJ.

    Have a Merry Christmas!

  5. Oh, I am dancing....well as best I can!!! I beat you! I already have made them and they are deliciious. I bought another box and the lime ones also!!

  6. I'm a huge orangesicle fan--had them very often as a youngster. This oldster likes them too.
    These cookies looks scrumptious!! Great tip about the orange juice.

  7. I love those sweet treats and MUST try the cookies:) I hope you and yours have a mighty blessed Christmas! BIG HUGS!

  8. Oooh, I haven't seen this mix - looks so tasty!

  9. Dreamsicles are a favorite treat for me too, but it's been years since I last had one. Oh, they are so creamy! The cookies look delicious. May have to make these tomorrow……Sarah

  10. Hi bj ... you have made me hungry for something sweet and those cookies should do it. I love orange flavor, but nothing too sweet. Those cookies look so delicious and I would be happy to just have one of those delicious looking oranges ... I will be baking sugar cookies this week-end ... not extra sweet nor iced or decorated ... just plain old sugar cookie is how my family likes them. Hope you have been able to slow down a little and enjoy you new home. Have a wonderful Christmas (I know you will) ...
