Orange Infused Butter Cookies

A sweet, orange delight
Course: Dessert, teatime


  • 1 kg plain flour
  • 500 g salted butter chilled and cut into squares
  • 500 g castor sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • Zest of 2 - 3 oranges
  • melted chocolate


  • Mix the butter, sugar, zest and vanilla together until just combined.
  • Gradually add the eggs.
  • Add the flour and bring the mixture together until just combined (Be careful not to overwork the mixture).
  • Divide into 3 parts and carefully roll each part into a cylinder shape.
  • Wrap each cylinder shape in clingfoil and chill for approximately 1 hour.
  • Once chilled roll the dough to approximately 5 mm thick.
  • Cut out the cookies and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Place baking tray with the cookies on it in the fridge for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 175°C for 8 – 12 minutes until the edges have just started to brown – be careful not to overbake.
  • Dip the cookies in melted chocolate or drizzle as desired.


Make sure you roll the dough out onto a non-stick surface and sprinkle both surface and rolling pin with icing sugar to avoid sticking to surface and rolling pin.
Remember to not overwork the dough.
