Sometimes it's great to sit in the great outdoors and let life pause for a moment. You know you find that corner near you – a seat by the canal, under your favourite tree in the park or even your front doorstep. Just occasionally I like to take an afternoon cuppa out with me and, of course, a great cookie.


Orange and Cashew Nut Cookies


It's a chance to take a breath and enjoy that moment and these dreamy cookies complement that cup of fruit tea entirely. They are so smooth and creamy with that touch of a tang of citrus orange, but with a soft crumbly texture, yet still the cookie holds together.

I love orange flavour and cashew nuts are the perfect complement as they really enhances that zesty citrus flavour, while adding a crunch nutty texture of their own. Too good to resist!
