Orange And Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have had a bottle of orange extract sitting in my cupboard for a few weeks now that I have been wanting to bake something with. And after baking a Sour Cream Cake last week, I had half a bag of dark chocolate chips left to use up. So I present to you… Orange And Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies.


125g unsalted butter
200g caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp orange extract
1 egg
200g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
175g dark chocolate chips
50g dark chocolate

  • Preheat oven to 180°C and line baking tray with non-stick paper
  • Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy
  • Add the egg, vanilla and orange extract and mix well
  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt into the butter mixture and add the chocolate chips. Mix until just combined
  • Put tablespoon sized balls of dough on the baking tray about 2 inches apart
  • Bake for approx 10 minutes then leave on a rack to cool completely
  • Melt the remaining dark chocolate and drizzle over the top of the cookies

    when I was a little girl I always went to the store that’s on the corner and they had the best cookies ever and as I read the ingredients of your cookies I realized that they are very similar, you made my day 🙂
