These biscuits are quick and easy to make and judging by the reaction here, will go down a storm. Ideal if you are having someone very smart to tea … or actually just something nice to have in a tin in case of emergencies like ‘Oh must have a biscuit’ times!
- 250g plain flour
- Pinch salt
- 1tsp baking powder
- 220g butter
- 220g granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- Grated rind of 1 orange
- 100g dark chocolate
Preheat oven to 175ºc and grease or line baking trays.
Cream butter and sugar, add the egg and orange rind and mix, then fold in the flour, salt and baking powder until combined.
The mixture can then be piped onto the baking trays using either a piping bag or a biscuit gun, leave about 1 inch between the biscuits as they will spread a little during baking.
Once cool melt the chocolate in a bowl and dip in biscuits, place on parchment paper until chocolate hard.
