When we went home for Fathers’ Day, my mother-in-law showed me a new cookbook her friend lent her: Six Sisters’ Stuff. I took one look at their picture and knew they had to be from Utah, based on their hairdos. On the fly of the book, sure enough, it said they were raised in Utah. I don’t know if I should be proud or embarrassed to be so familiar with Utah hairdos.

I picked a couple of recipes, looked them up online on my phone and told my mother-in-law I didn’t need to write the recipes down because they were all online. She was amazed and even told her friend who lent her the book that I could find the recipes online. They were really impressed.

It was my daughter-in-law, Elizabeth’s idea to try these this week. She recommended that we bake up some with semi-sweet chocolate chips rather than the white chips. It was a great idea but she liked the white chips better. They are very buttery!

Recipe By:

Six Sister’s Stuff




2½ cups all purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ easpoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
½ cup sugar
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons orange zest (for me that was the zest of 2 oranges)
2 cups white chocolate chips


1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.

2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth.

4. Gradually stir in flour mixture until combined.

5. Stir in orange zest and white chocolate chips.

6. Drop 2 tablespoon balls of dough onto cookie sheets that are ungreased or lined with parchment. Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Do not overcook! Cookies will be plump. Cool for several minutes on cookie sheets before transferring to rack to cool completely.
