Plump Orange Cookies

My kitchen was filled with aroma of oranges when these plumpish cookies were being baked. I have a small collection of Women's Weekly -Australia magazine recipes and adapted these from there.

Ingredients: Yield 23 cookies

All Purpose Flour - 1 cup
Whole Wheat Flour - 1 cup
Almond meal - 1/4 cup
Zest of 4 oranges
Powdered Sugar - 6 tbsp + little more for sprinkling on top of cookies
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 1/2 cup (cold)
Oil - 1/3 cup (I used canola oil)

  • Pre heat oven at 190 deg C.
  • Sift APF, WWF, sugar and baking soda together in a big bowl.
  • Add in almond meal and orange zest and mix everything together nicely.
  • Add in milk and oil and bring the mixture together.
  • Make small balls of the mixture and place in baking tray a little apart from each other.
  • Bake the cookies for 30 mins or till golden brown from outside.
  • Take them out and let it cool for sometime , sprinkle some powdered sugar on top with a sieve before digging into them.
Store in an airtight container. They tasted so nice and were crispy with cracks. Very light cookies served as a good evening snack for my daughter.
