Zesty orange and chocolate chip cookies

Cookies are the new cupcakes, no need to be fiddling with any fancy icing, they cook in under 10 minutes, and you can just put them into your handbag for sharing.

I made these orange and chocolate chip cookies by adding the grated zest of 1 orange and a packet of chocolate chips into the basic cookie dough, added and mixed in this order:
– 125g softened butter
– 100g sugar
– 1 egg
– 110g whole meal flour (you can use white if you prefer)
– half a tsp baking powder
– pinch of salt

Makes around 16 cookies

Once all mixed in and orange zest and chocolate are added, put the dough onto cling film, roll to a log shape and put in the freezer for 30minutes.

After 30mins take the dough out, slice and bake on greaseproof paper 5cm apart for 8-10 minutes on 200 degrees.

I find it easier to take the cookies off the paper once they have fully cooled.
