Orange Spice Cookies



By Kate Miller

Who else love cinnamon spice and all things nice? The captivating sweet aroma of cinnamon reminds me of those good old-fashioned cinnamon cookies that my late grandma used to bake for Christmas.

I made a few changes in my grandma's original recipe and it turned out perfect! The cookies are amazingly crunchy at the edges, soft in the centers and delicately scented with an array of warm spices. They are really easy-to-make biscuits, and believe me, they disappear fast.

My kids love these orange tea cookies for afternoon snacks. They are also great to have around when you crave for sweet butter cookies. Sure to make you go mmm...

Easy Orange Spice Cookie Recipe


250g plain flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

teaspoon ground clove

teaspoon ground ginger

1 tablespoon grated orange zest

175g butter, cut into small cubes

125g castor sugar

1 egg

5 tablespoons milk


How to make orange spice cookies

1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat your oven to 375˚F. Grease baking sheet.


2. Sift the flour and spices into a mixing bowl.


3. Add orange zest and butter. Rub the ingredients together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.


4. Stir in sugar. Add eggs and enough milk to form a stiff but manageable dough.


5. Roll out the cookie dough, about 6 cm thick, on a lightly floured work surface.


6. Using your cookie cutter, cut out desired shapes. Or, you can roll them into small balls and flatten slightly.


7. Place the biscuits on prepared baking sheet, slightly apart.


8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.


9. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then serve warm or transfer to wire rack and let cool completely. Enjoy!
