ORANGE SHORTBREAD RECIPE
So quick and easy to make and just perfect with a cup of Yorkshire tea.
This is a classic shortbread recipe with a twist, by adding the zest of an orange you get a real subtle flavour. If orange is not to your liking you can easily leave it out!
170g (6oz) Flour
115g (4oz) Butter room temperature.
56g (2oz) Sugar
Step 1: Mix
Add the flour, butter, sugar and orange zest to a bowl and combine, first by rubbing into bread crumbs, then squish. It doesn't look like it will come together, but it does!
Step 2: Chill
Roll the combined dough into a slim sausage about the diameter of a 10p this will give you lovely delicate size shortbreads. If you prefer a bigger shortbread then roll your sausage to about the diameter of a rolling pin. Once rolled wrap in cling film and allow to firm up.
Step 3: Line
Line a baking sheet. Then slice your sausage into 1/2cm thick circles and space evenly out on the baking sheet.
Step 4: Bake
Bake in a 180c oven for about 12-15 mins or until the biscuits are golden.
Step 5: Serve
Remove and allow to cool before enjoying!
