Orange & choco chip cookies


Guess what, I won a cookbook giveaway! I love giveaways and participate in them with full gusto, especially when its a cookbook at the end of the rainbow. Last month, I won 500 Cookies:the only cookie compendium you’ll ever need in a giveaway hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen. So, as you can guess, my answer to all questions is now cookie. Bored? Have a cookie. Sad? Have a cookie. Happy? Have two cookies. You get the drift….


I am trying out my first recipe of the 500 today for tea time snacks.

So here goes –

WHAT WE NEED  (for 12 large or 20 small cookies)

Unsalted Butter                 1/2 cup (113 gms)

Sugar                                     1 cup

Egg                                         1

Orange zest                         3-5 tsp

Vanilla extract                    1 tsp

All purpose flour               1 1/2 cup

Baking soda                         1/2 tsp

Baking powder                    1/4 tsp

Salt                                          1/4 tsp

Choco chips                          1 cup

WHAT TO DO

  • Preheat the oven to 190C
  • Beat the butter and sugar. Its not necessary for them to get fluffy. they just need to blend well with each other
  • Add the egg, orange zest and vanilla and combine
  • Sift together the dry ingredients
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the mixture
  • Add the choco chips and mix well.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to make small balls of the cookie dough and place them on a greased baking tray 2 inches apart. This gives space to the cookie to spread out

  • Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  • Cool for around 10 minutes
  • Store in an air tight container for upto 5 days.
  • Enjoy!
