Ingredients

  • 175g softened butter
  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 300g plain flour
  • zest and juice 1 orange
  • 140g icing sugar, sifted
  • sprinkles, to decorate

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix the butter, sugars, egg yolks and vanilla with a wooden spoon until creamy, then mix in the flour in 2 batches. Stir in the orange zest. Roll the dough into about 22 walnut-size balls and sit on baking sheets. Bake for 15 mins until golden, then leave to cool.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the icing sugar with enough orange juice to make a thick, runny icing. Dip each biscuit half into the icing, then straight into the sprinkles. Dry on a wire rack.
