I can't vouch for the authenticity to what Starbucks serves, but these are pleasant. I think they are better without the orange oil - it's almost over the top with orangeness, like cheap air freshener. I back off the sugar a little, to 3/4 cup. When I have fresh oranges for juice, I throw the pulp in, too. It is some hard work to cut in the butter - as it gets smaller, it gets hidden by the oatmeal, and you are working with a good bit of dry ingredients.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (double two sheets if you have them — one inside the other). Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a large bowl, place flour, oatmeal, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda and mix together. Cut or rub in butter to make a mealy mixture.
  3. Stir in egg and orange juice. Add orange oil or extract. Mix to make a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead for a few minutes.
  4. Roll or pat out into a thickness of 1/2 inch. Using a serrated cookie cutter, cut into disks or rounds. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar and orange zest.
  5. Bake until nicely browned — about 14 minutes.
  6. *If you want a glaze, just mix up a simple one using powdered sugar, milk, and orange zest.
