Orange & chocolate are a winning Christmas combo for me and these orange & choc-chunk cookies do it justice as far as I’m concerned. I am not sure where my notion of this flavour combination belonging in Christmas comes from – maybe it’s Terry’s chocolate oranges – who knows? But I really love these cookies, and for me they have become one of my must have Christmas treats. (I get a little greedy around them!) They are free from all allergens so everyone can enjoy them and they are best served when not long out of the oven – so the chocolate is still warm and semi-melted – mmmmm… so time your baking well 🙂
Much of my baking is to try and provide Aars with yummy treats to fatten him up. At Christmas time it seems socially acceptable for people to indulge and allow themselves the foods which they normally resist! This makes me very happy as I love feeding people and showing them that vegan biscuits and cakes are delicious and indulgent and scrummy – oft’ being slightly healthier than their non-vegan counter parts – not that that’s important at this time of year!
