Chocolate Orange Cookies

We both love chocolate cookies as they are, but sometimes it is funny to experiment and make new variations of old recipes. As christmas is coming up, I wanted to try a version with orange as it reminds me of my childhood where my mom had oranges with cloves hanging in the windows.
Last year I bought a few tablespoons of orange purée and it was very expensive, so I decided to try and make my own this year. It turned out to be great and will definitely recommend that you make it yourself (it is very easy). Putting my home made orange purée into these cookies has been nothing less than a hit and I am without doubt going to make them for christmas 🙂

 

Ingredients (16 cookies)

1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate (I prefer Amedei Toascano Black 70%)

1/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (— // —)

1 tbsp. butter

1 egg

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla sugar

1/3 cup flour

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/2 tsp. orange purée

 

Melt chocolate and butter together slowly in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Be careful not to get any water into the bowl, as it will ruin the chocolate.

In another bowl whisk together egg, sugar, vanilla sugar and orange purée. Whisk until combined and add the melted chocolate (before adding the chocolate, make sure that it is not warmer than room temperature, otherwise it will ruin the batter).

Combine until smooth before shifting in flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk again until combined and then add the chocolate chips (if your chocolate chips are large, it is good idea to chop them roughly, before adding them to the batter).

Put teaspoonfuls on a baking tray, and bake at 350F for 12-13 minutes.

And VERY IMPORTANTLY – don’t forget to lick the bowl, spatula and spoons so that nothing goes to waist 😀

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies cookies cookies… we could eat cookies every day all year around. Therefor we try to experiment with different recipes – not to find the best, but to develop excellent cookie skills 🙂

The inspiration for this version came from our favorite Danish chocolate blog, and consists of the same ingredients, we just changed 1/3 of the bittersweet chocolate to white chocolate chips. The combination of the cookie made with dark chocolate and the small white chocolate chips is delicious and worth a try. If you don’t like white chocolate, just use dark chocolate chips, which is delicious too.

Before you begin, we would like to say a word or two about the choice of chocolate. You can use any kind of chocolate, but the best result will definitely be obtained if using a good quality chocolate. We primarily use chocolate from Amedei, as it is without any sort of additives (but also due to its delicious taste and creamy consistency). So find you favorite chocolate and make these cookies for your loved once.
