Orange cookies

Gluten-free Orange Cookies (dairy-free option)

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 24 cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil (for dairy-free), softened
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour (I use Bob's Red Mill gluten-free 1-to-1 flour)
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2-3/4 cup white chocolate chips (if dairy-free, omit the chocolate chips)


  1. To begin, preheat your oven to 350 and line two pans with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add your coconut oil, white sugar and brown sugar and beat with a mixer till creamy. Add your orange juice, orange zest, egg and vanilla and mix together again briefly.

  3. To the same bowl, sprinkle in your flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir until everything is well incorporated and you have a thick, smooth cookie dough. Add your white chocolate chips and gently fold them into your batter.

  4. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop your cookie dough balls onto your pans, and spread them evenly apart (about 12 cookies to each pan). Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or till the edges of the cookies are set and just gaining some color.

  5. Let your cookies cool on the pan for at least 15 minutes, and then move them onto a cooling rack till they have cooled entirely.

  6. Devour!
