I have made these biscuits by replacing the butter with the Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil… a bit out of curiosity and also because I had run out of butter, and so, I experienced this recipe … I’m jumping in with both feet! The stuffing with extra Jam of Carrots, Orange and Coriander is then a personal addition which is really unique. In fact, they were … seeing that they disappeared in a moment!
Check out how I’ve made them.
Preparation time 20 minutes + 40 mins in the fridge, Cooking time 20 mins
Method for the dough
Beat the eggs and gradually add the oil, mix constantly.
Now add cane sugar and mix constantly.
Knead the mixture with the sieved flour, add baking powder, lemon zest, vanilla extract drops and a pinch of salt. You have to get a smooth compact dough (See picture). If the dough is too dry, add a little oil again.
Place now the dough on a work surface. Wrap it in a plastic film and put in the fridge for about 30/40 minutes. After that, you can start to make your biscuits.
Method for biscuits
Pre-heat the oven.
Roll the dough on a chopping board with a rolling pin. Now with a glass or with a round pastry cutter, make some disks of pastry, the size you prefer. On each pastry, disk put a teaspoon of jam and then seal it with another disk of pastry.
Bake them for about 15 minutes in the preheated oven up to 200 degrees. When they begin to brown, take off from the oven, let them cool down, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve up!
