Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been living very quietly – around two weeks ago I had a nasty fall and badly sprained my knee. I’ve also had a very irritating chesty cough so I really haven’t been in the mood for doing much baking or proper cooking.
One thing I did manage to rustle up for my boys last week was these very yummy chocolate orange sandwich cookies from the April issue of Sainsbury’s Magazine. I have to admit I do love the Sainsbury’s magazine – it’s such a good read and always packed full of yummy sounding recipes. I love curling up with the latest copy and a mug of tea – the simple things in life make me happy
This recipe is by Joanne Wheatley and lets just say it was a roaring success with my boys and their friends who happened to call by the house that day. The cookies by themselves are so good – they are thick, chewy on the outside and soft in the middle. They taste of vanilla and are loaded with chocolate chunks (I used a large bar of Cadbury’s Milk chocolate).
What really takes these cookies to another level is the chocolate orange ganache you fill them with. I’m sorry I don’t have a picture of the filled cookie sandwiches. I did take one but I can’t find it right now. But you’ll see them on the link below. They really are gorgeous. Wish I had one right now!
