Orange & Chocolate Chip Biscuits

We don’t often have oranges in our house. The kids have never been overly keen and I’m not a big fan either. But over the weekend they chose some at the supermarket, so I thought that it would be nice to try a new recipe out whilst we had some in the house, as I do like a bit of orange zest in a cake or biscuit. Little Man helped me to decide what to bake, and he was very keen to wield a cookie cutter, so orange and chocolate chip biscuits it was!

This was the first time that we tried this recipe, and I made a few changes to the originals that I used to create it. I absolutely loved the smell of them baking and I now cannot get enough of them! Yes, these are set to become a regular bake here now, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you today…

Orange and Chocolate Chip Biscuits. So easy to make, and I'm now finding myself to be a little bit addicted to them! Yummy cookies!

Orange & Chocolate Chip Biscuits
Makes 12


165g Butter
220g Plain Flour
100g Sugar
100g Chocolate Chips
1 Large Orange/2 Mandarins Zest
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
A Pinch of Salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  2. Line 2 baking trays with grease-proof paper.
  3. Grate the orange/mandarins to create the zest into a bowl. There should be around 3 tsps worth. Add the sugar to the bowl and mix together well, mashing the two together with a spoon.
  4. Add the butter and vanilla essence to the bowl and mix all of it together. You should create a lovely smelling, zesty butter!
  5. Next add the pinch of salt and flour and stir it all in thoroughly.
  6. Add the final ingredient, the chocolate chips, and mix well.
  7. Sprinkle a little flour on your worktop and then roll out the mixture until it’s around 1cm deep.
  8. Select a cookie cutter shape and cut out your biscuits, placing them onto your readied grease-proof trays.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

  1. ohh what a lovely combination. I’m not keen on oranges, but I love them in recipes. And I have a passion for biscuits, I think I’ll have to give these a go.
