Orange Shortbread

with Bay Sugar

These buttery orange shortbread biscuits are perfect with a cup of tea for a mid-morning treat. Made with just four ingredients and in one bowl, this is a great recipe to try with children with the biscuits cut into a variety of shapes

Ingredients

For the biscuits

  • 500g plain flour

  • 125g icing sugar

  • 375g butter

  • Finely grated zest of 2 oranges

For the bay leaf sugar

  • 2-3 dried bay leaves

  • 100g granulated sugar

Method

  1. Place the flour, icing sugar and orange zest in a large bowl. Rub in the butter to form a breadcrumb like mixture, then gather together into a soft dough. Form into a large rectangular shape, wrap in cling film and chill in a refrigerator for 1 hour.

  2. Roll out to 1cm thick and use a circular cutter of your choice.

  3. Select Fan Plus 160°C on a Miele Oven and cook the biscuits for 25 minutes until lightly golden.

  4. Whilst the shortbread is cooking in a food processor, blitz together the bay leaves and sugar. Coat the biscuits in the sugar when they are still warm and then leave to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
