Orange chocolate cookies

“Every year Christmas a must!”






Orange chocolate cookies


200 g wheat flour
60 g cornflour
1 level teaspoon baking powder
100 g sugar
1 sachet of  vanilla sugar
grated zest from 1 orange
1 egg
125 g soft butter
100 g bittersweet chocolate


How to make the cookies:

// Cut the chocolate in small pieces.

// Mix ingredients and work through with a dough hook first on lowest and then on highest speed. Then knead it to a smooth dough.

// Form dough into rolls about 3 cm thick, press wide so that the dough rolls are about 5 cm wide and a good 1 cm high, and put in a cool place until the dough has hardened.

// Cut slices about 1/2 cm thick with a sharp knife, place on baking tray and bake in preheated oven at top/bottom heat 175-200°C (hot air 160-180°C, gas mark 3-4) for about 10 minutes.
