I made these a few weeks back but have been rather slow with getting things written up lately so sorry for those who were after the recipe. I also misplaced the scrap of paper I had scribbled the recipe on and just had to frantically search through numerous bags to find it again.

I really love those chocolate crinkle cookies with the icing sugar coating that cracks when baking so i sort of went with a variation on that theme. I mixed orange zest with sugar to make a scented sugar that I hoped would result in a crunchy coating once baked.

Below is the recipe;

Chocolate Orange Crunch Cookies

Set your oven to 170c

For the sugar coating combine;

  • 60g white sugar
  • Finely grated zest one medium orange

Mix and set aside

For the cookie dough combine;

  • 175g white sugar
  • 100g dairy free margarine
  • 25g cocoa
  • Finely grated zest one orange

Once the above ingredients are combined mix and gradually add flour and salt until a dough is formed;

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 150g plain flour

Roll the dough into balls and coat in the sugar.

Put onto greaseproof paper on a oven tray and flatten slightly.

Bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, no longer than 12. Leave to cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a rack.
