Chocolate Orange Cookies

They began with the totally tangy Marmalade Muffins and a what if. What if: a little more sweet? What if: chocolate?

Chocolate Chips are always great but if you use a marmalade with 'bits' (like our home made stuff) you get a fabulous burst of orange. There is tang enough to keep you happy but these are a much more mellow beast.

What? This makes a perfectly balanced breakfast. 

Chocolate Orange Cookies
(makes around 12)

110g Margarine (we love the Vitalite!)
65g sugar
90g Marmalade
250g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
50g chocolate chips

Pre-heat the oven to 180 C and prepare a baking tray

Cream together margarine, sugar and marmalade

Mix in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt

Mix together to form a dough (go on, get your hands dirty!)

With wet hands form a tablespoons worth (ish, eyeball) of the dough into a ball. Flatten against the baking tray

Repeat until you have a tray full and cook for 10 minutes

Allow to cool on the baking tray for five and transfer them to a cooling rack.
