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.

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.

These cookies go very well as a sweet treat with evening tea or coffee.

How to make orange crinkle cookies

Making orange juice

1. Grate the orange peel to get the orange zest. Make sure to grate the orange part and not the white pith as its bitter. Keep the zest aside.

Baking orange crinkle cookies

10. Divide the dough into 12 to 14 small shaped balls. Flatten the balls and arrange them on a greased baking tray with enough space between them. Don’t make any designs on them as I have done, since the designs don’t stay once the cookies are baked 🙂

11. Bake in a preheated oven for 200 degrees celsius//392 degrees fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes till the cookies are golden. Temperatures vary from oven to oven, so the time will also vary. For baking in a microwave oven at convection mode, bake at 180 degree celsius for the same period of time.

  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..

    1. vini, crinkled cookies will have cracks on top. for a smoother cookies add less oil or fat.

  2. Hi there!

    You have a fabulous blog ! Couldn’t get better ❤

    I tried the Orange Crinkle cookies over last weekend. It seemed a little chewy however it tasted good. I baked it at the temperature you recommended (200 deg) however the base of cookies kind of browned a bit and the top wasn’t getting baked at all . Finally I changed it to the toast mode and somehow it looked perfect.I am using the 45 ltr Bajaj OTG. Is it supposed to be less sweet? Can I add more sugar to this recipe?5 stars

    1. Thanks Amentha. For cookies keep the pan in the center rack. You can use both the top and bottom heating elements on. Sweetness will depend upon the sweetness of orange juice. If the orange juice is tangy and less sweet then you can always add more sugar.

  3. Perfect recipe, madam.. cookies were delicious…. thank you for sharing such a joy of cooking…5 stars
