Recipe 50 Orange Marmalade Cookies Recipe Review

I fancied something a little festive whilst trying something different. I found a couple of marmlades in my cupboard which I was given and as I don't really eat it for breakfast, it takes me a while to get through. I found this recipe and thought it would be great to try and use up some leftover marmalade.
1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
6 tablespoons orange marmalade
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder


Preheat oven to 375°F Grease a cookie sheet (I just use parchment paper).

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and orange marmalade and mix until thoroughly combined. Add additional marmalade if the batter is too stiff.

In another bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. With the mixer running, slowly add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture until blended.

Drop by spoonfuls on the cookie sheet; do not crowd the cookies as the batter will spread during baking. Bake until the cookies spread out and are lightly browned, 8-10 minutes.

Cool a minute or two on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

This recipe worked really well and was super quick and easy to make with little washing up. The marmalade gave the cookies a sweet citrus flavour and were enjoyed in our lunchboxes to work! I used quite large dollops of the mixture and they were fluffy rather than flat, so if you want crispier cookies, I would recommend squashing them down a little before baking.
