Whole wheat orange marmelade cookies

Lots of marmelade and wondering what to do! Well, whip up these delicious orange cookies and enjoy it with a cup of tea or coffee 🙂

Ingredients

  • Whole wheat flour – 2 cups
  • Unsalted butter – 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup orange marmelade
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Orange zest from one orange plus 1/4 cup sugar

Method

  • Grate the skin off the oranges and keep the zest aside
  • Grind the orange zest with 1/4 cup sugar in a mixer or blender and keep aside
  • Beat sugar and butter until frothy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to prevent any sugar remaining in the bowl which is not incorporated. Add the orange zest, orange marmelade and mix well
  • Add the yogurt and oil and mix well
  • Add the dry ingredients – wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix well until the dough starts to come together . At this stage, use a folding in movement, i.e. mix well in one direction so that there are no air bubbles formed
  • Press and flatten the dough with your hands to smooth and even out the dough. If the dough appears tough, you can knead the dough again in your food processor or stand mixer, until smooth
  • Line a cookie tray with parchment paper or grease well with butter
  • Divide the dough into small balls and flatten slightly
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 160 degrees Celsius for 10-15 minutes until the cookies are crisp and golden brown from the bottom and slightly golden from the top

Enjoy the cookies with hot tea 🙂 Store in an air tight container once the cookies cool down
