Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m beginning to see a bit of a trend with my food posts, they all seem to be biscuits, cakes or puddings!I like to think that’s because they are the most appealing recipes rather than I eat more sugar than health-food but I’m beginning to wonder.

It doesn’t help having children of course. I’d rather bake and give my 7-year-old home-baked biscuits than rubbish stuffed full of aspartame and trans-fats. Still, it isn’t doing my waistline any favours, especially when the biscuits are THIS delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 250g/9oz butter
  • 150g/5.5oz caster sugar
  • 300g/10oz self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • Grated zest of 1 orange
  • 50g chocolate chips

Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees/Gas 4/fan oven 160 degrees.
  • Beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy
  • Stir in flour, orange zest and milk and mix well
  • Add the chocolate chips and mix gently
  • Divide the mixture into 18 portions and put flattened balls of cookie dough on your baking sheets, leaving room for the biscuits to ‘spread’ in the oven
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.
  • Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets then remove to a wire rack to cool and crisp up.
