About this recipe: These are delicious orange biscuits with a hint of white chocolate. A fun and easy to do recipe with a unique flavour combination.

Makes: 3 dozen biscuits

  • 30g white chocolate
  • 175g unsalted butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 200g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • zest of 1 orange

Prep:25min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:33min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water, melt the white chocolate, stirring frequently until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  4. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Divide dough in half. Mix orange zest into one half, and melted white chocolate into the other half. Use a bit of each mixture to form a single ball about 2.5cm in diameter. (I get a cookie cutter and put the two halves in it so they all turn out the same.) Place on baking tray lined with parchment.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes then cool on wire racks.
