About the bake

These hazelnut and orange cookies are absolutely delicious. They make a nice gift or alternatively you can eat them all yourself! For a different variation try Lemon & Raisin cookies. Replace the orange zest with the zest of a lemon, and the hazelnuts with 50g (2oz) raisins.

Method

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C, (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Cream together the butter and sugar, then beat in the egg.

  2. Step 2:

    Add all the remaining ingredients and stir well.

  3. Step 3:

    Drop heaped tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto greased baking sheets leaving room to spread (about 4-6 per sheet).

  4. Step 4:

    Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are just beginning to brown; they should still be soft in the centre.

  5. Step 5:

    Cool on the baking sheets for about a minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
