Ingredients

30 piece(s)

  • 160 g raw sugar

  • 260 g plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 25 g cocoa

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Mill sugar 10 sec/speed 9 and set aside.


    2. Mill orange zest 20 sec/speed 9 and set aside.


    3. Add butter and reserved sugar to TM bowl. Mix 30 sec/speed 4. With 10 seconds to go, add vanilla essence and reserved orange zest through the hole in TM lid.


    4. Divide mixture in half, keeping 200g in one TM bowl and transferring the other 200g to a second TM bowl.


    5. Add 160g of flour and 1 tablespoon of orange juice to the mixture in one TM bowl. Knead 30 sec/Closed lid/dough modeTransfer dough onto a ThermoMat and work into a ball. Wrap in ThermoMat and refrigerate for 30 minutes.


    6. Add remaining 100g of flour, 1 tablespoon of orange juice and cocoa to the mixture in the second TM bowl. Knead 30 sec/Closed lid/dough modeTransfer dough onto a second ThermoMat and work into a ball. Wrap in ThermoMat and refrigerate for 30 minutes.


    7. Roll out orange dough between ThermoMat and a piece of baking paper, to form a rectangle approx. 24cm x 30cm. Transfer rolled-out dough onto a baking tray, leaving baking paper underneath.


    8. Roll out chocolate dough between ThermoMat and a piece of baking paper, to form a second rectangle approx. 24cm x 30cm. Place this chocolate layer directly on top of the orange layer. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.


    9. Starting at the long edge, roll dough very tightly, using baking paper to assist. Refrigerate for another 30 minutes, or until very firm.


    10. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Cut dough roll into slices approx. 4mm thick. Place on baking trays, allowing room for spreading. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until just golden. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Tip

1. This is a conversion of an Easter treat that a friend introduced me to a few years ago. It is tied to Easter in my mind, however it would also be perfect for party or picnic snacks.

2. If you don't have a second TM bowl, simply transfer half of the mixture to a plain bowl instead. Once you have put the first dough ball in the fridge, transfer the second lot of mixture into your TM bowl and proceed.

3. If you don't have one or two ThermoMats, you can use plastic wrap to wrap the balls of dough in. You can then roll out the dough between two sheets of baking paper.

    I saw the recipe and looked at prep time and went ahead. OMG it took so much longer than 5 mins preparation and had to let the dough rest in fridge THREE times (75 mins alone just for fridge time).



    If I was to rate the recipe based on just the biscuit end result it’d be a 4 😊

  • Just made these and they

    Just made these and they turned out really well! Used mandarin instead of orange and added a few drops of orange essence. A bit fiddly to handle at times (and I didn't have a second bowl so guessed how much was half the mix to set aside). But they baked beautifully and I'm sure will be great tomorrow in a kids' party spread. Thanks for the recipe!
