Servings 24


  • 1 cup melted salted butter
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp orange zest from about 1-2 oranges
  • 4 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 room temperature egg
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar for rolling the dough
  • 4 oz melted white chocolate
  • ¼ cup orange sprinkles


  • In a stand mixer, combine melted butter, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, orange zest, and juice. Mix until well combined. Add the egg and mix on low.
  • Gradually add in the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt while mixing on low. Mix until just combined. Cover the bowl and chill the dough in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a medium cookie scoop, form 24 dough balls (about 2 tablespoons each). Roll them in granulated sugar and place 1-2 inches apart on the prepared sheet.
  • Bake for 9 minutes or until the cookie edges are set. Let them cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Once completely cooled, melt white chocolate in a heatproof bowl, heating in 20-second intervals and stirring in between. Drizzle the melted chocolate over half of the cookies and top with sprinkles if desired.
