Chocolate & Orange Christmas Cookies

Wednesday 18 December 2013
I wanted to share this recipe I created last night but first here's a photo as I'm busy wrapping and stitching...

Back again, I created these after seeing all the amazing cookies made for National Cookie Day in the US a few week ago. I was inspired by a Nigella recipe but wanted to use white chocolate and lots of Christmas flavours. These have a real Christmassy taste to them with orange essence and a little cinnamon.

Here's the recipe...

125 grams white chocolate
150 grams flour
30 grams cocoa
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
125 grams butter
1 pinch of salt
50 grams caster sugar
80 grams of brown sugar
1 teaspoon o orange essence
1 pinch of cinnamon

Makes 12

Heat the oven to 175C 
1. Melt the chocolate in a pan on a low heat.
2. Cream the butter and sugars together. Add the orange essence.
3. Add the melted chocolate.
4. Mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt together and sieve in.
5. Mix the mixture and then spoon in dessert spoon size chunks onto a greaseproof lined tray.
6. Bake for 20 minutes and leave to cool on a rack.

They are great warmed with ice cream ...mmmm!

Happy baking! Share your Christmas bakes at #createitsamantha.
