White Chocolate & Orange Cookies: Sweet & Simple Bakes
This is a first for me. I had noted all the wonderful St Clement’s Drizzle Cakes made by the members of Sweet & Simple Bakes last month and thought it would be fun to have a go myself. As this month’s bake included chocolate, I couldn’t really dip out!
I mostly stuck to the recipe as given – sort of! I used 1/2 wholemeal and 1/2 white spelt flour and all my ingredients are, of course, organic. Actually, I also used less chocolate – G&B Vanilla is so rich, I thought 100g would be enough.
Here is a link to the original recipe
The results were pretty good, they were crisp around the edges and a bit chewy in the middle and I like my biscuits like that. I wasn’t quite so happy with the high sugar content though and found them rather too sweet. So I was glad I didn’t use the full quantity of chocolate as stated. The flavour combination was good though, so I will be making these again – less sugar next time and maybe a bit more chocolate. Thanks go to Maria and Rosie of Sweet & Simple Bakes for this.
