‘Eat me’ cookie stamp and orange biscuit recipe

Whilst snowed in on Sunday I decided it was the perfect opportunity to do a bit of baking and try out one of my Christmas presents - a cookie stamper! I won’t lie, stamping cookie dough is probably one of the most satisfying things you can do while baking. And although it does rather state the obvious I love that it also reminds me of Alice in Wonderland, Mad hatters tea party anyone?

As you’d imagine the stamper is super easy to use, just dust with flour and stamp onto balls of cookie dough. Even though it’s called a cookie stamper it’s really more for biscuits (must be American) as you obviously can’t make anything with chunks in or they won’t stamp and it also needs to be something that doesn’t rise too much in oven or the design will stretch and disappear... 

With this in mind I decided to use the recipe that came with it, but added orange zest and juice to make flavoured biscuits rather than vanilla.

140g caster sugar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
300g plain flour
250g butter
1 egg yolk
2 tsp orange juice
Grated zest of one orange

Preheat oven to 190C (gas mark 5)
Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
Add butter and blend until crumbly. Stir in egg yolk, orange zest and orange juice.

Separate into golf sized balls on baking tray lined with baking paper. Dust the stamp with flour and stamp the dough!

Bake for 8 – 10 minutes then leave to cool on a wire rack.
Enjoy with a big cup of tea!
