Frosted Orange Biscuits Recipe

Ingredients:

6 tablespoons softened butter

75 g caster sugar

1 egg

1 tablespoon milk

220g plain flour

20g cocoa powder

Icing:

170g sifted icing sugar

3 tablespoon orange juice

dark chocolate, melted

Method:

  1. Carefully line 2 baking trays with sheets of baking paper.

  2. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and milk until well combined. Sift together the flour and cocoa powder and gradually mix together to form a soft dough. Use your fingers to incorporate the last of the flour and bring the dough together.

  3. Roll out the dough on to a lightly floured surface until 5 mm thick. Using a 5cm fluted round cutter, cut out as many biscuits as you can. Re-roll the dough trimmings and cut out more biscuits.

  4. Place the biscuits on the lined baking trays and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.

  5. leave the biscuits to cool on the baking trays for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  6. To make the icing, place the icing sugar in a bowl and stir in enough orange juice to form a thin icing that will coat the back of a spoon. Spread the icing over the biscuits and leave to set. Drizzle with the melted chocolate and leave to set before serving.
