I loved the lemon butter biscuits so much that I had to try them flavoured with orange zest! You could also try other fruits too like grapefruit, banana or strawberry by adding 30g – 40g of fruit to the mixture. With this recipe I added some food colouring to add a more orangey tone to the biscuits 😀
120g unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
1 large egg
1 large orange
200g plain flour
1/3 baking powder
1. Beat the butter and sugar together until creamy, then add the egg and continue beating until its light and fluffy.
2. Finely zest the orange into the bowl, then add the plain flour and baking powder. Give it a big mix.
3. It will look a bit like a cake mixture now, use a heaped teaspoon to put the biscuits onto the baking tray and finally bake in the oven for 20 minutes until brown and golden.
