Chocolate and Orange Biscuits

Biscuits to us Brits, or cookies to the Americans. Either way I’ve never really had much success making either of them, but I decided to give it another go using the recipe in Delia’s Cakes. Yes, it’s weird that the book with “Cakes” in the title has recipes for biscuits, but never mind.

The recipe is pretty easy to put together, although I found the dough a bit dry and I added a little extra orange juice to bring it all together.

The resulting cookies look great and are very uniform in appearance, but they are too hard for my liking. It’s quite likely I overbaked them, but I also found the orange and chocolate flavour to be lacking. Not a big win in my book, but Mark seems to like them and tells me that they are even better when dunked in a mug of tea.
