Orange Crinkle Cookies

Orange Crinkle Cookies are delicious , soft , yet  crunchy with a wonderful flavor of fresh orange juice .

Orange is one of the fruit flavours that I am fond of . Definitely chocolate takes the priority at all times , but if I had to choose a fruit flavor , it is definitely something citrusy .These cookies have been in my drafts since one year ! I made them last year when hubby was travelling to US for my nephews wedding . It’s sad that I couldn’t go , due to health reasons , but I made sure he carried some edible gifts for the family there .

 

My cousin who is a big time follower of my blog always appreciates my recipes and is very fond of cookies . So , I decided to send him a pack of cookies . I made four variations , out of which I shall be posting three this week for the theme Christmas Goodies . All the cookies were very different and they made a good assorted cookie box .

 

The orange crinkle cookies are absolutely delicious , and they look pretty with that snowy effect done by icing sugar . Fresh orange juice makes them really flavorful . The use of chickpea flour gives the cookies a very unique and pleasing flavor . While making these cookies one really doesn’t have to go and get ingredients , and these are butterless cookies , which are perfect for vegans too .

 

Orange Crinkle Cookies are my Day 1 post under the theme Christmas Goodies.
