In this recipe, we'll show you how to make the perfect orange crinkles that are sure to brighten up any day.


  • 100g sugar

  • 100g icing sugar

  • 100g butter

  • 1 egg

  • 290g flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 an orange's juice

  • Zests of one orange


Step 1:

Mix the sugar, the butter and the egg until it becomes homogeneous.

Step 2:

Add the flour, baking powder, the juice and the zests. Knead together.

Step 3:

Transfer the crinkle dough to a sheet of baking paper and wrap it with it. Reserve in the fridge for 60 minutes.

Step 4:

Preheat your oven to 180°C/ 356°F

Step 5:

Shape cookie balls with your dough, roll then in icing sugar, and reusing your initial sheet of baking paper, line an oven tray for your crinkles.

Step 6:

Bake your crinkles for 15 minutes. They may still be very soft when you take them out of the oven but do not worry, let them cool down on a rack and they will reach the desired texture.
