- 20 min + chilling
- 25 min
- 250g unsalted butter
- 1 cup (150g) icing sugar
- 1/2 tsp Queen Natural Almond Extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cups (300g) plain flour
- 2 tsp grated orange zest
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugar, almond extract and salt until smooth.
With the mixer on low speed, add the flour and orange zest and mix just until the mixture comes together to form a dough.
On a piece of baking paper, form the dough into a rectangular log, about 30cm long. Wrap the log in the baking paper and freeze until firm.
Preheat the oven to 165C (fan forced) and remove dough from the freezer.
With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 5mm thick slices and place the slices on a tray lined with baking paper leaving a few centimetres between each one.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
