Because I haven’t seen my family in a while, I was feeling rather generous towards them. Because I was feeling rather generous towards them, I made marmalade. Because I made marmalade, I had leftover marmalade. Because I had leftover marmalade, I’ve revitalised this recipe from the old blog.
Home-made marmalade is best, with nice big chunks of candied orange peel.
110g vegan butter (we use Naturli)
65g caster sugar
250g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
50g of chocolate chips
Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC and prepare a baking tray
Cream together the butter, sugar and marmalade.
Mix in the flour, bicarb, and salt, and form a dough.
With your hands, gently knead the chocolate chips into the dough.
Break off a tablespoon’s worth of dough and roll into a ball. It may be easier to wet your hands to do this. Flatten the ball slightly against the baking tray.
Repeat until you have about 12 cookies on the tray. Or until you run out of dough.
Cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
Allow to cool on the tray for five minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
