These are beautifully light biscuits. They take flavour on really well, I tend to either do orange blossom or vanilla but lemon, lavender, cinnamon would be great too. I make these with my three year old nephew whenever I see him so they are really simple to make and great to make with children. They can be decorated with chocolate or anything you would like.
I’ve starting my sorting and packing ready for our big move to Norway. I have seemed to accumulate so much rubbish in just two years. I’m now trying to decide whether I am ready to start getting rid of university notes or to pack them and put into storage. It took my mum 30 years to throw hers away and she didn’t look at them once in that time so maybe I should just do it and keep the notes from only my favourite courses.
I’m looking forward to going to see my family in a couple of weeks and making these biscuits again with my nephew.
Orange Blossom Biscuits
- 125g plain flour
- 100g butter
- 50g icing sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp orange blossom essence
- 1 egg yolk
- Pre-heat the oven to 170C. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
- Mix the flour, butter, salt and icing sugar together until the mixture looks like bread crumbs. Add the orange essence and egg yolk and mix until a dough forms.
- Roll out the dough 3mm thick and use a cookie to cut out the biscuits, place on the baking parchment. Cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes, cook on a wire rack.
Enjoy! H x
