Chunky Choc Orange Cookies

Chunky Choc Orange Cookies


250g/9oz butter, softened
50g/2oz caster sugar
100g/3 &1/2 light muscovado sugar
330g/10oz self-raising flour
2 tbsp milk
175g/60z orange-flavoured dark chocolate , very roughly chopped
50g/2oz pecan nuts, very roughly chopped***

*** as this is a recipe for Finley's pre-school parents coffee morning , I am not using the nuts.

Takes 30 minutes * Makes 18

* preheat oven to 180c/ Gas 4 / fan oven 160c. Line 2 or 3 baking sheets with non stick baking paper ( or bake in batches.)
In a bowl , beat together the butter & the sugars until light & fluffy. Stir in the flour & milk, mix well then stir in the chocolate & nuts

* Divide mixture into 18 equal portions. Roughly shape into balls. Put on baking sheet well apart to allow for spreading. Lightly flatten each biscuit with your fingertips, keeping mixture quite rough looking.

* Bake for 15-20 minutes until the cookies are pale golden around the edges, but still soft in the centre. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Allow to cool a little more before eating.


Thanks for reading,
