What better way to spend some time indoors, than baking cookies. These chocolate orange marmalade cookies are a great choice for a baking day.
- 200 g Plain Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 0.25 tsp Salt
- 150 g Light Brown Soft Sugar
- 50 g Unsalted Butter
- 60 g White Chocolate
- 1 tbsp Sunflower Oil
- 1 Egg beaten
- 100 g Orange Flavoured Milk Chocolate
- 10 tsp Marmalade
Preheat the oven at 170C (160C fan assisted)
Place flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Melt the white chocolate, oil and butter in a saucepan over a gentle heat, once melted add to the flour mixture and mix until it all becomes crumbly.
Let it cool, then add the egg and beat to form a stiff dough.
Cover the dough and let it chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Remove the dough from the fridge and divide it into 10 weighing roughly 50g each.
Chop the orange chocolate into small chunks and add 10g to each piece of dough.
Form each piece of dough into a ball and place on a lined baking tray with plenty of space between each one to allow them to spread.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and spoon a tsp of marmalade over each cookie. Return to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes.
Remove the cookies from the oven and leave to set on the baking tray. Once they have begun to cool, transfer them to a rack to finish cooling.
Store in airtight containers for up to 3 days.
