Linseed and orange biscuits

Click on the flag for the French version

There come some nice biscuits that I made to accompany my India dessert the other day and that I presented in my previous post (here).

The idea of mixing linseeds and orange came from some biscuits I bought in an organic shop with a mix of flavor from orange biscuits that I bought at my work place.

They are also very good with tea or coffee.

I like to eat some of those biscuits for breakfast, doing like French use to do with croissant: dipping it into the hot coffee.

Linseed and orange biscuits


300 gr / 10.5 oz flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
125 gr / 4.5 oz softened butter
100 gr / 3.5 oz sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
half an orange juice
1 orange peel
40 gr / 1.5 oz linseeds

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Sift together the flour and baking powder,
and add the linseed and the orange peel.

Cream sugar and butter
and add the egg, the egg yolk and the orange juice
and mixed all together.

Stir the flour mixture into butter mixture until well blended and smooth.
Roll the pastry into sausage form and put it into a plastic film,
And put in the fridge for an hour.

Cut the pastry sausage into biscuits,
And bake for around 10 minutes.
