Kids love cookies, and ours don’t disappoint – neither the kids nor the cookies. You can make delicious cookies with a bit less sugar than the normal truckful by replacing some of it with our sweet sapa. The adults will think you are terribly sophisticated and the kids won’t notice the difference. Perfect.
Butter – 200g/7oz
Sugar – 100g/½ a cup
Sapa – 2 tablespoons
Flour – 250g/2 cups
Orange – the grated zest of 1
Dark chocolate – 400g/14oz
Preheat your oven to 190oC/375oF/GM5.
In a bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Pour in the sapa and mix it in. Gradually beat in the flour and then the orange zest.
Next roll out the dough on a floured surface, to about ½cm thickness. Cut out your biscuits with a cutter or the top of a glass. Carefully place the cookies onto a well greased baking try and bake for 9-11 mins. They’re usually done when you can smell them.
While they’re cooling, break the chocolate up in a small bowl and melt it using a bain-marie (a glass bowl on a saucepan of just boiling water). Dip one end of each cookie into the chocolate, then let them dry completely.
