  • 100
  • 120
    castor sugar
  • 380
    cake flour
  • 10
    baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1
    extra-large egg, whisked
  • 1
    finely grated rind of an orange
  • 10
    freshly squeezed orange juice
  • glacé mixed rind for garnishing


Preheat the oven to 180 ºC and spray a few baking sheets with non-stick spray or butter lightly. Cream the butter and castor sugar until light and fluffy. Sift together the dry ingredients. Beat the egg and beat into the butter mixture, a little at a time. Fold in the dry ingredients and rind. Add a little orange juice if the mixture is too dry. Leave the dough to rest in the fridge for 10 minutes. Shape into walnut-sized balls and arrange on the prepared baking sheets. Make a slight hollow in the centre of each cookie with your finger and decorate with a piece of glacé rind. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cookies are pale brown underneath. Cool the cookies on wire racks before storing in an airtight container. Makes about 75 small cookies.
