Date and orange cookies


150g flour
150g margarine
150g sugar
1 orange
1 tsp baking powder
75g oatmeal
75g dried & chopped dates

Mix the margarine and sugar in a bowl until creamy. Grate the orange and add the orange rind to the mixture.

Gradually add the flour, baking powder and oatmeal. Add the dates and mix until combined.

Line 2 baking sheets with greaseproof paper, or grease a baking tray.

Place heaped tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking sheets. Space them well apart to allow the mixture to spread.

Bake in the oven for 15 to 20min until golden brown.


Replace the dates with other dried fruits or chopped nuts.

Oranges rinds can be substitued for lemon rinds.

Mash a banana and add to the mixture to get banana shortbread fingers.
