READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by spatchcock

This is a wonderful cookie recipe for those who love oatmeal cookies and also orange-flavored cookies. They are chewy, not crispy, and are fairly quick-cooking!

These were okay. The consistency was pretty good, but they didn't really have much flavor as I don't like nutmeg and left it out. I added cinnamon and they were okay. Not great, but passable. I wish they had more of an orange flavor. I added an extra 1/2 tsp. of zest, which didn't seem to do much good either. I probably won't be making these again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl of mixer, cream butter and sugar until fluffy; beat in egg, orange zest and juice.
  2. Gradually beat in flour, baking powder, soda, salt and nutmeg until mixed.
  3. Add oats (I used quick-cooking oats, but I think that old-fashioned or rolled oats would improve the texture.).
  4. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake in 350° oven until golden around edges.
