Chocolate, pistachio & orange cookies
I have always liked to bake.
As a kid my favourite thing to cook was chocolate chip cookies and I must admit, I really don't think I ever grew out of it! Today I decided to tweak the tried and tested recipe and added in some extra ingredients for a more grown up version - one orange and a bag of chopped pistachios later, i think I might be converted!
Chocolate, Orange & Pistachio Cookies
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 Self Raising flour
3/4 cup chopped chocolate
rind of one orange
1/2 cup chopped pistachios
Cream together butter, sugars, orange rind & vanilla
Add beaten egg gradually
Mix in sifted flour
Add chocolate & pistachios, mix well
Bake at 180' for 10 - 12 minutes.
