Crisp orange and chocolate chip shortbread

Yes, we’re back to cookies again but that’s because almost every kid in the world loves cookies. I’ve found this delicious recipe at the amazing BBC Good Food Blog and you can find it here. This recipe is not only gluten-free, it’s also super easy to make which means you can let your kid help you prepare them and maybe, with supervision, allow them to make them for themselves! That way, they can treat you for a change. The combination of orange and chocolate chips makes these cookies truly delicious and kids of all ages (and their parents too) will love them.

Servings: Makes 10 cookies


  • 3 ½ ounces butter, softened
  • 2 ounces golden caster sugar or stevia if preferred
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate chips
  • The grated zest of ½ orange
  • 6 ounces gluten-free flour – I use this one available at
  • ½ tsp baking powder


Preheat your oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Line and lightly grease a baking tray. With a fork, beat the butter with the sugar and orange zest until smooth and light. Add the flour, chocolate chips, and baking powder and blend to form dough.

Split the mixture into ten equal-sized balls and arrange on the baking tray. Squash each ball flat with the tip of a knife. Refrigerate for 15 minutes and then bake for 12-15 minutes or until browned. Leave the cookies on the baking sheet for two mins before removing with a palette knife and placing onto a rack to cool completely. Your cookies will stay fresh in an airtight container for up to seven days.
