I came across this recipe few days back. It was written on the back of All purpose flour packet. They had used orange zest in this recipe to give it a nice flavor. Orange zest means the grated peel of orange. This was the first time I used orange zest in my cooking. Loved this simple recipe and gave it a try! Shortbread was light and crispy with the nice aroma of orange zest.
I have tried this recipe several times already and the shortbread got over within 2 days every time. I'm sure, kids love this yummy and crispy shortbread. Also, you can give it as teething biscuits to babies for biting.
Wish you happy cooking :)

Preparation time: 40 minutes
Difficulty level: Medium
Yield: 25 pieces (depending on the size)


Ingredients:
  • Zest of 2 Naval Oranges
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup (plus 2 tsp if you want to make it sweet)
  • All purpose flour / Maida - 3 cups (approx)
  • Unsalted butter - 125 gm

Method:
  • Transfer the sugar to mixie jar and make a fine powder. 
  • Let the butter be in room temperature. Beat it nicely and then add powdered sugar. Beat it till its fluffy and creamy. Add the orange zest and mix it well.    
  • Fold in the all purpose flour little by little and make a smooth dough. Keep adding the flour till you are able to make a dough ball out of it.  
  • Dust the rolling surface with some dry flour. Roll out the big dough ball into a large circle using a rolling pin and cut it into desired shapes. Rolling is not compulsory, you can make it into any shape of your choice.
  • Pre heat the oven to 170°C. Arrange the shaped shortbread pieces in the oven tray and bake them for 15 - 20 minutes or till golden brown. Take them out after 5 minutes and allow to cool.
  • Shortbread will become crispy once they cool down. Store them in an air tight jar and enjoy with your cup of tea or coffee!
