these eggless cookies have a light orange flavor and taste. also they have a moist and soft texture. they are not crisp or crumbly or chewy. i had made these crinkle cookies some months back, a few days before the new year and the recipe was in drafts from then.

usually i prepare cookies with whole wheat flour or a combo of whole wheat flour + all purpose flour and gram flour/besan. these cookies too have gram flour in them. fresh orange juice is added here. but even ready orange juice works well. i have already shared the recipes of orange muffins and eggless orange cake recipe.

the orange cookies recipe is simple and easy. i have replaced butter with olive oil. you can even make the cookies with butter. butter will give a different texture and taste than olive oil. few more cookies recipe in the blog are butter cookies, coconut cookiestutti frutti cookies and chocolate chip cookies recipe.

these eggless orange cookies go very well as a sweet treat with evening tea or coffee.

  1. Hi Dassana,

    Can I use butter instead of olive oil? not sure if my family would like the smell of olive oil in cookies..

    • Mekhala, yes you can use butter.
