Brace yourself, winter has come. The temperatures dropped and a hot cup of tea is one of the best ways to recover from the cold. If you have some biscuits to go with it, the perfect ones for dipping in the tea, the ones that don’t become too soggy or stay too crunchy, you’ve hit the jackpot. Luckily I have a perfect recipe for those kind of biscuits. 🙂


Ingredients for the basic recipe:

  • 170 g of sugar
  • 170 g of butter
  • 1 egg
  • 275 g of polenta
  • 125 g of wheat flour
  • 1 orange


  • Melt the butter and mix with sugar, polenta, flour and egg until you get a thick, wet mixture.


  • Grate a zest of one orange, mix well, cover with cling film and put in the fridge for an hour.
  • Heat up the oven to 170 Celsius degrees, and put a grease proof paper on the tray. Put a teaspoon of mixture on the paper leaving 5 cm space between each one.


  • Place in the oven for 15 minutes, until the edges become golden, then take out and cool for 10 minutes.

I pimped my batch with a teaspoon of vanilla paste, a handful of candied orange pieces and a tablespoon of rose water. And sprinkled them with chocolate sprinkles. When they were done I glazed them with caramel cream. Heaven. It’s best if you combine the flavors you like best.
