Ampersand Biscuits!

8 Jan

Today I baked some cinnamon and orange shortbread finished with a piece of wooden type – suitable for all font fiends, letterpress lovers and biscuit fans.

12oz plain flour
8oz butter
4 oz brown sugar
teaspoon cinnamon
zest & juice of a large orange

Oven – 180 c.
Combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon, and then add the butter and mix well. Grate in the orange zest and then gradually add the juice, kneading the mixture into a dough. Roll out the dough to 1 cm thickness, and lay a piece of clingfilm on top. Press your wooden printing type into the dough (but not too hard) and then cut around it using cookie cutter or similar.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until golden.

Eat & enjoy! &&&&&!
