If time permitted I would rather spend my time in my lovely kitchen than sitting down doing nothing. I decided to bake these cookies when I finished cooking my dinner last night. These delicately scented cookies are a real teatime treat. Yes oranges cookies with coffee or tea....
115g unsalted butter 50g caster sugar finely grated rind of 2 oranges 175g all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 190C. Grease a large baking sheet Beat together the butter and sugar until soft and creamy. Beat in orange rind
Gradually add the flour and gently pull the dough to form a soft ball. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1cm thick
Cut to desired shape, sprinkle over a little extra caster sugar and place on the baking sheet.
Bake for 20 min or til the cookies are a light colour
Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and leave to cool.
