||| Orange n' Chocolate Spiral Cookies |||


If you love the orange and chocolate combination then these are the cookies for you!


Ingredients:
  • 170g butter / margarine
  • 350g plain flour
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 25g dark chocolate, melted
  • grated rind of 1 orange


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy.

Add the beaten egg gradually to the mixture and beat well.



Sift flour into the creamed mixture and mix until a dough forms.

Transfer half of the dough into another bowl and beat in the cooled melted chocolate.


Stir the grated orange rind into the other half of plain dough.


On a lightly floured surface, roll out the 2 peices of dough to form rectangles of the same size.

Lay orange dough on top of the chocolate dough and roll up tightly into a sausage shape preferably using a sheet of baking paper to guide you.


Put dough into the freezer for 45mins until it is firm enough to slice.

Cut roll into slices and place them on non-stick baking trays.



Bake in a preheated oven at 190 degrees Celsius/Gas mark 5 for about 12 mins or until lightly golden.


Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and leave to cool completely before serving.
