Choc Orange Shortbread Cookies

I have been baking today as a reward for spending an entire afternoon building a greenhouse. One of my favourite cookie recipes is a shortbread one which I think I may have blogged about before. Well this is a tweeked version so sharing with you now.

You will need ;

125 baking butter

55g white sugar

180g self raising flour

1 tsp orange extract

80g choc chips

3 tbsp hot chocolate powder (not cocoa)

Method ;

Mix well until a dough is formed, tip out and roll into a long log the width of your desired cookies. Wrap in baking paper and put in the fridge for a good 45 mins to an hour until quite firm.

Slice off into cookie sized slices, I like to shape mine a little to make them prettier.

Place on a baking tray with a gap between each of a couple of cm as they do spread a little.

Cook at gas mark 6 near the top of your oven, until the cookies are browning on top.

Usually 15 – 20 minutes.

They stay soft while very hot so leave them to cool and harden. Eat warm and enjoy.
