Orange Biscuit Cookie Recipe!

As we haven’t had a recipe for quite sometime, I thought I’d share an old family favourite with you. It came from a very old recipe book, where the covers have long gone and so have several pages, but this little gem survived. The biscuits have an almost shortbread texture, which melts on the tongue but with the completely up to date addition of Orange to give them something special.

You Will Need

100 gms/4 oz Plain Flour

50 gms/2 oz Dried Semolina

100 gms/ 4 oz Butter

50 gms/2 oz Caster Sugar

Grated rind of one large Orange

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350F, 180C (Fan oven 160C), Gas 4. In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar. Add the Orange rind and beat again.

Step 2

Mix the flour and semolina together in a seperate bowl and then add to mixture. Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Roll out the biscuit mixture, it should be roughly 3-4mm in depth. Then using a biscuit cutter of your choice, cut out into shapes. Place on a baking tray.

Step 4

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack and then enjoy!
