Why I Love This Recipe

Maya Gold chocolate is very dark plain chocolate flavoured with orange and spices. It makes a wonderfully aromatic cookie quitedifferent from your average chocolate chip! If you can't get Maya Gold where you are. I strongly suggest bribery of anyone you know in the UK to send you some. It's truly divine.

No photo as they all disappeared before I got my camera out!

Ingredients You'll Need

100g/bar Green & Black's Maya Gold Chocolate
125g/4½oz unsalted butter/margarine
100g/3½oz granulated sugar
75g/2½oz soft brown sugar
1 free-range egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
150g/5¼oz plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt


Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Chop the chocolate thouroughly and set aside - make sure you save all the tiny crumbs as wella s the bigger irregular chunks.

Heat the butter in a small saucepan very gently until it has just melted. Meanwhile, put the two types of sugar into a mixing bowl. Pour the melted butter on top of the sugars and beat well with a wooden spoon.

Add the egg and the vanilla and beat until well blended.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the mixing bowl and stir them in, then add the chopped chocolate.

Drop heaped dessertspoonfuls of the mixture over the lined baking sheets, leaving plenty of space in between them.

bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are just turning golden brown.

Leave the cookies on the baking sheets to harden for a couple of minutes, then carefully lift up the baking parchment and transfer them to a wire cooling rack.

These cookies are good warm or cold.
