Orange Cookies

After a long week at work, there is nothing more I enjoy than spending an afternoon baking. Here is how I make orange cookies.

Ingredients:

200g unsalted butter, softened
80g coconut sugar
250g plain flour
Grated zest of 1 orange

Directions:

-Preheat oven to 170°C, Gas mark 3

-Cream the butter until soft in a large bowl or a food mixer

-Add the sugar and mix until the mixture is light and fluffy

-Add the zest and flour to the mixture to form a dough

-With your hands, shape dough into small balls and place them on a lined baking tray

-Flatten the dough slightly and place in the oven for 14-20 minutes until golden brown

-Transfer onto a wire rack to cool

I like using coconut sugar as it’s a slightly healthier alternative to caster sugar and gives the cookies a lovely golden colour. You can add pretty much anything to the cookies, like chocolate chips, dried fruit, or lemon zest. Just swap out the orange zest and replace with an alternative.
