Recipe: Spiced Orange, Raisin and Fudge Biscuits

Spiced Orange, Raisin and Fudge Biscuits

Spiced Orange, Raisin and Fudge Biscuits

When I first attempted these cookies, I was very disappointed as they did turn out how I wanted. I am a perfectionist and hate it when things don’t go to plan, so I got straight on making a new batch. I had used the wrong recipe – instead of making a thick, tea-dunkable cookie, I had made a more chewy and sugary thin biscuit that spread like wildfire in the over! Mum came to my rescue and gave me a recipe that I could adapt with my chosen flavours. Being a baking novice, I will have to learn to love a bit of trial and error!


140g butter

170g caster sugar

1 egg

280g plain flour

1tsp baking powder

1tsp mixed spice

55g fudge squares

55g raisins

2tsp grated orange zest


– cream together then butter and sugar

– add the egg

– mix in the raisins, fudge and orange zest

– sift in the dry ingredients and combine until a workable dough forms (if your mixture is too wet, add a little more flour)

– roll the cookie dough into a sausage about 2″ in diameter, cover with cling film and refrigerate for 2 hours

(preheat oven to 180*c and line a few baking trays with greaseproof paper)

– after 2 hours, slice the dough into biscuits, just under 1cm thick

– bake in the over for 12-15 minutes, or until golden

– cool on a wire rack and then enjoy with a cup of tea!

(makes about 20 cookies)
