This is one of my all-time favourites. Mum used to make these biscuits when I was little and I remember coming home from school during the winter months to a house filled with warmth and the aroma of freshly baked Jaffa cookies. Yummo!
It’s so much easier to make biscuits than everyone thinks it is. I mean, really, you chuck it all in a bowl, mix the bloody thing and flop it on a tray. Presto! They are so easy, even the most lazy cook can whip up a batch of these in a flash.
4 oz butter
3 teaspoons orange juice
2 teaspoons of grated orange rind
1 1/2 cups of self raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 cup chocolate bits
1. Cream butter and sugar
2. Beat in orange rind and juice and then add the beaten egg. Mix well.
3. Stir in sifted flour and choc bits. Allow yourself two choc bits to eat. No more!
4. Grease and line a baking tray and drop heaped spoonfuls of mixture on the tray, ensuring you leave adequate space between them to allow the mixture to spread in the oven. Or you know what happens.
5. Bake at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
