Ingredients

  • 200 g light muscovado sugar
  • 120 g soft unsalted butter
  • 1 medium egg
  • ½  teaspoon of Nielsen-Massey orange extract
  • 200 g plain flour
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • ½ ground cinnamon
  • ½ ground nutmeg
  • ½ bicarbonate of soda
  • 60 g candied peel chopped finely
  • 80 g chocolate chips to add to the mix
  • 20 g chocolate chips to add to the dough balls for decorations

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (160 fan, gas mark 5) and line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  • - Cream together the butter and sugar.
  • - Stir in the egg and orange extract.
  • - Sieve in the flour with the cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and bicarb.
  • - Add the shopped candied peel and the 80g of chocolate chips.
  • - Roll the cookies into balls. I used one heaped tablespoons of each ball.
  • - Leave a space between the cookies as they will spread.
  • - Place the remaining chocolate chips on top of the dough balls. These won't sink into the mix when baking (see the photo above).
  • - Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
  • - Leave to cool slightly before enjoying. They taste amazing warm with a glass of milk or cup of tea.
