Ingredients

  • 100 g Plain flour
  • 100 g Cornflour
  • 175 g Unsalted butter softened
  • 100 g Icing sugar
  • 150 g Dark chocolate
  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange or 3 clementines

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180⁰C.
  • Sift the flour and cornflour into a bowl.
  • Cream together the butter, icing sugar and orange zest until fluffy.
  • Gradually beat in the sifted flour and cornflour.
  • Put half the mixture into a cookie press with heart shape plate.
  • Press out cookie dough allowing room for spread onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Repeat process with the other half of the dough.
  • Bake in oven for 8 minutes or until lightly golden (turning tray after about 5 minutes).
  • Allow to cool on tray for a minute before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Meanwhile melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of barely simmering water (the smaller the better).

  • Serve with a cuppa or a bowl of ice cream.

Notes

If using a waxed orange/clementines make sure you wash off the wax well with either washing up liquied or vinegar and water.
