Orange cream biscuits

I sent some of these in the post, early last week. 

They arrived in record time, I was surprised. but ever so glad! It was the best feeling to send someone a home cooked pressie, from me to them. Just awesome. 

I'm planning to do it again next month. Have you heard of #fucktober? I hope Eden likes baked goods ;)



Orange cream biscuits 
120 grams butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup custard powder
1 tablespoon orange juice
pinch salt
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1 egg
1 1/2 cups SR Flour

Preheat oven to 190C.
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add in orange juice and rind, and stir to combine.  Then stir in egg. 
Lastly, stir in sifted flour, custard powder and salt. 
Form into small balls. Place on a greased tray and press with a fork dipped in flour, to flatten.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove to a wire rack to cool.

Icing
75 grams butter
3/4 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon milk
1/2 teaspoon orange rind

To make icing, beat the butter and icing sugar in a small bowl, Beat in the milk. Stir through the orange rind. 

Spread one biscuit with about half a teaspoon of icing, and join with another biscuit of the same size.
