Orange & Choc Chip Biscuits

These were super easy to make and so perfect for the kids to help with.  Doodles loved cutting out the shapes - we used hearts this time but they could be any shape.  This is another recipe from Annabel Karmel's Feeding Your Baby & Toddler book - this was my bible when Spiderboy was learning to eat and I still use it!  

You might want to prepare the dough & chill it first if you have an impatient toddler who can't wait to get going :)

175g butter (at room temp)
75g icing sugar
225g self-raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp grated orange zest
60g plain chocolate chips

Sieve the flour & icing sugar into a bowl.  Add the remaining ingredients except for the choc chips and beat together well (or throw everything into a food processor and let that do the work!)  When the dough has come together, stir in the choc chips and knead the dough thoroughly before rolling into a ball.  Wrap in cling film and put into the fridge to chill for an hour or so.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut out your shapes.  Place on a baking tray (using greaseproof paper if you have it) and bake at 180 degrees for around 10 minutes.
