I came across this blog recently, and thought I would give it a try.. Maria and Rosie from Sweet & Simple Bakes, give you a simple recipe that you can make at home. Then you just send in what you have made, and on the 1st of every month they post the creations.

This is the one for November.

Chocolate and Orange Cookies(you can find their recipe here and a printable recipe here)
I substituted the white chocolate chips for a mixture of white and dark because I ran out of white..

Preheat your oven to 190 degrees celsius
Beat the butter and the sugar together until light and creamy.

Add orange zest and 1 egg
Once egg and orange zest is thorougly mixed in, add sifted flour, bi-carb, baking powder, salt & chocolate chips.
Mix well until all ingredients are combined.

Place tablespoon scoops of dough onto baking paper lined trays, and flatten slightly with your fingertips.
Let cook for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Leave on tray to cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.

When cool, store in airtight container for up to 5 days.
They probably won’t last for 5 days, as these will get eaten straight away!!
