Bitter orange biscuits for cheese

The Steenberg's organic orange blossom tea in these biscuits make for a wonderful cheese board biscuit.
The sharp taste from the tea takes the sweetness of the sugar away leaving an orange scented tang, great with a tangy wenslydale or feta cheese and a fruity chutney.


What to do

  1. Warm the butter slightly
  2. Rub the butter into the flour, ground tea, caster sugar and organic orange blossom water
  3. Bring the mixture together to form a dough ball
  4. Lightly flour a work surface and roll out the dough to about 1” even thickness
  5. Cut out small biscuit shapes
  6. Cook on a lined biscuit tray in the oven at 180’c for 15-20 minutes till lightly golden brown
  7. Sprinkle very lightly with the organic cinnamon sugar
  8. Cool on a wire rack
  9. Serve on their own  or with a cheese selection, chutneys, and fruit
  10. These biscuits if cut out small make great canapé holders
