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