Orange Black Current Cookie Recipe

Orange Black Current Cookies (traditional recipe first)

  • half a cup of butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 orange rind scrapes for orange bits
  • 1 orange juiced (put though strainer, no seeds and bits)
  • 3/4 cup of dried black currents
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tbsp. of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp of Salt
  • 1/2 tsp of ground ginger

Cream Butter and Sugar, then add eggs, blend together, add vanilla, orange rind bits, orange juice and currents, mix together.. then add flour, on top of that, add the rest of the dry and mix together. I like to then chill this for five min in fridge, cut into two parts, roll in logs in wax paper an then cut into cookies at about a inch each, bake at 350 till golden brown.

But I needed to change a few things up for the unprocessed challenge, they turned out excellent but had to be carefully watched in the oven as they browned easier with the honey and they really needed the chill time. I also removed one egg for a bit of less liquid.

Modified Recipe Unprocessed Version

  • Half a cup of butter
  • Half a cup of honey
  • 1 large farm egg (I wanted a big egg so it was a duck egg)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 orange rind scrapes for orange bits
  • 1 orange juiced (put though strainer, no seeds and bits)
  • 3/4 cup of dried black currents
  •  1 and 1/2 cups of white wheat whole flour.
  • 1 tbsp. of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp of Salt
  • 1/2 tsp of ground ginger

It was a bit more tricky as the amount of orange juice per orange would make a difference and I lowered the oven temp by 25 degree’s and watched it carefully, I found it was a touch sticky and I needed a touch of flour on my logs
