Mireya’s orange & cardamom biscuits


Fancy doing some baking this Valentine’s Day?

Mireya’s biscuits are super easy, fragrant and delicious. The orange and cardamom work perfectly together,  and are a delicate surprise for the senses. Gift them as a romantic treat, or enjoy any day of the year alongside a cup of tea.



Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. 

In a bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer or with a fork. Add the egg and mix until combined.

Add the flour, the baking powder, the salt, orange zest and the cardamom. Mix until a ball is formed, then wrap it in cling film and pop in the fridge for an hour.

Dust a flat surface with flour and roll the dough until it is around 5 mm thick.

Cut the biscuits using a cutter, or use a knife to make rectangles if you don’t have one. Just make sure to keep the sizes the same so they bake evenly.

Arrange them on a lined baking tray, making sure they don’t touch each other and baking in the oven for 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. 

If you want you can swap the cardamom and orange version for lime or lemon zest, it tastes delicious too. Enjoy!
