Rosa's Chocolate Orange Cookies

These utterly delicious cookies are my daughter Rosa's recipe. She loves baking and can make these on her own as they are nice and easy to make. They are my idea of perfect when cooked, with a crisp outer layer and a gooey centre. Rosa and I say they are best eaten warm but do last a good few days...if you can resist them for that long!!!


  1. Heat the oven to 180℃ / 160℃ fan / gas 4. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.
  2. Beat together the butter and both of the sugars until creamy.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together until you have a dough consistency, bringing it together by hand if it's easier.
  4. Roll into golf ball shapes, or even better if you have an ice-cream scoop, scoop balls onto your prepared trays.
  5. Bake in the oven for 9 minutes. If they are light golden but still look slightly soft in the middle they are ready, if not leave for a further minute or so.
  6. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack, and enjoy whilst still warm, or leave to cool and store in an open container (not an airtight one as they will go completely soft and lose their crunch).
