- 250 g softened butter
- 460 g sugar
- 6 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla sugar
- 100 g orange juice, approx 1 orange juiced
- zest 1 orange, grated
- 1200 g Self Raising Flour, approx 6 mugs
- 1 egg extra for egg wash
Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line 4 trays with baking paper.
Cream Butter and Sugar together for 2 mins, speed 5, until pale in colour.
Add eggs one at a time while blades still turning.
Add juice, zest and vanilla sugar and mix 30 seconds, speed 5.
Add 500g four and mix 5 sec, speed 6, then knead for 2 mins. At this point you can try adding small batches of the remainder of the flour but what you will find is that at some point, you will need to knead the rest of flour by hand, as this is a large batch and may not fit into the Thermomix. You can halve the recipe and do it in 2 batches if you wish.
Once dough is kneaded it should resemble a very soft playdough.
Shape into plaits, snails or whatever you wish and place onto tray. Lightly beat the egg for egg wash and baste the biscuits.
Put into oven for about 15 -20 mins or until golden in colour.
If you don't want to do any kneading by hand, halve this recipe and do it in 2 batches. You can also decrease the sugar amount to taste.
These biscuits are delicious when dipped in a hot cup of tea!
