Christmas Project roundup – Chocolate Chip & Cinnamon Cookies

February 13, 2011 at 16:04 | Posted in Christmas Project, Recipes | Leave a comment

The second cookie recipe I’ve used for my Christmas Project was for Chocolate Chip & Cinnamon Cookies. This recipe was taken and adapted from a book I’ve recently purchased by Susanna Tee called “1001 Cupcakes, Cookies & other tempting treats”.

I have adapted the recipe as not to include cinnamon, which isn’t a favorite ingredient of mine…

Ingredients:
225 gr. butter, softened
140 gr. caster sugar
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
2 tsp. orange extract
280 gr. plain flour
pinch of salt
100 gr. plain chocolate chips

Cinnamon coating (optional):
1 1/2 tbsp. caster sugar
1 1/2 tbsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 190C. Line two large baking sheets with baking parchment. Place the butter and sugar in a large bowl and beat together until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg yolk and orange extract. Sift together the flour and salt into the mixture, add the chocolate chips and stir until thoroughly combined.
To make the cinnaom coating, mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a shallow dish. Scoop out tablespoons of the cookie dough, roll them into balls, then roll them in the cinnamon mixture to coat. Place them on the baking sheets, spaced well apart.
Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Leave to cool on the baking sheets for 5-10 minutes, then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

In Him,
Alice
