Yet another take on the basic cookie recipe. These spiced biscuits tend to disappear very quickly.
What you will need
225g/8oz softened butter
140g/5oz caster sugar
Grated rind of one orange
1 egg yolk lightly beaten
2tsp orange juice
280g/10oz plain flour
1 tsp ground ginger
115g/4oz dark or milk chocolate melted
Mix your butter and sugar in a bowl with a wooden spoon.
Beat in your egg yolk.
Sift in your flour along with the pinch of salt
Add in the grated rind of orange, orange juice and ginger.
Roll the dough into a round ball, then wrap in cling film.
Chill in the fridge for about 30-60 minutes.
Shape the biscuits into rectangles.
Bake for 10-12 mins.
Once the biscuits have cooled, dip half cookie into cooled choc.
Leave to set.
