We're sorry we can't share these treats in person, but here is a recipe you can make at home.

Orange Cookie Recipe


  • ½ cup (1 stick) salted butter, softened
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon fresh orange zest
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1 drop red food coloring
  • 2 drops yellow food coloring
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer, beat butter, cream cheese, orange zest, and granulated sugar until blended.
  3. Add in egg, vanilla, orange extract, and the red and yellow food coloring.
  4. Add in flour, baking powder, and ½ cup confectioners' sugar. With the mixer on low, gradually beat into a creamed mixture.
  5. Using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop, create balls and roll them in the remaining confectioners' sugar.
  6. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Flatten dough balls into rounds. Place approximately 6 dough balls on each sheet.
  7. Bake until they no longer appear wet on top, about 8-11 minutes.
  8. Let cool in the pan until firm enough to transfer to cooling racks
