Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g unsalted butter
230g caster sugar
3 eggs
60ml milk
1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
750g plain flour, sifted
3 teaspoon baking powder
80-155g sesame seeds

Method

  1. Cream butter with sugar until light. Add 2 eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Lightly beat remaining egg.
  2. Take out 1 tablespoon egg, add to milk and set aside. Add the remainder of egg to creamed mixture with vanilla and orange zest.
  3. Sift spices with flour and baking powder, and add to mixture gradually to form smooth dough. Knead for several minutes, then chill dough in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  4. To shape biscuits, take a piece of dough and roll into a thick rope about 1 cm in diameter. Form into rings or figure-8 shapes, brush tops with reserved egg-milk mixture and dip into sesame seeds. Place on greased baking trays.
  5. Bake in a preheated moderate oven (180°C) for 25 minutes or until just lightly coloured. Cool slightly on trays before transferring to wire racks. Store in airtight containers.
