It’s getting Christmassy here at the Cooking Flea and who am I not to share something Christmassy with you?
I have made these easy-peasy biscuits, combining the most of winter flavours: chocolate, orange and vanilla!
These biscuits are perfect to go into a cookie box and gifted to the ones you love because there’s no better pressie than something you have made with your own hands (and love!).
Get the music and lights on and let’s bake!
50g plant-based milk
3.5g baking powder
A pinch of salt
½ tsp vanilla paste
½ orange zest
80g dark chocolate, melted
In a big bowl, add all the ingredients with exception of the flour and the chocolate.
Mix until the sugar has completely dissolved.
Add the flour, bit by bit and once the dough gets thick, knead with your hands. Add more flour if it’s too wet.
Once the dough is smooth, cover and let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Dust some flour on your table, stretch the dough with a rolling pin, about 4mm. Using a cookie cutter, shape your cookies and gently lay them on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. Use any leftover pastry.
Bake at 180°C for 10 to 12 minutes and once done, place on a rack to cool down.
Whilst the cookies cool down, melt the dark chocolate at bain-marie. Dip half of each cookie into the chocolate, or - as I did - use a teaspoon to cover half of it.
Set aside to cool again. Once the chocolate is set and dry, it’s time to enjoy!
