This zesty spin on the classic chocolate chip cookie adds orange to compliment the dark chocolate chips.
200g butter, softened
200g soft light brown sugar
250g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
5g Guittard Cocoa Rouge
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Zest of one orange
50g walnuts crushed
200g Guittard Extra Dark Chocolate Chips
In a large mixing bowl whisk the soft butter until fluffy and pale, add the brown sugar, and then whisk again until well incorporated. Add half the flour with the baking powder and cocoa powder and mix well. Add the eggs one at a time, the vanilla, the orange zest and then mix well. Add the rest of the flour, walnuts and chocolate pieces and mix well.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper and take a rounded teaspoon of mixture and put on the tray. Make sure to space each spoonful at least 5 cm apart, place into a preheated oven at 190°C (375°F) for 10 minutes. Remove when they start to turn slightly brown on the edges. Carefully lift each cookie on to a wire rack to cool.
