  • 2 tsp orange zest

  • Knead into a ball, wrap in plastic foil and chill in fridge for 30 mins minimum
  • Once chilled, get two baking sheets and roll the dough between them (2cm thickness)
  • Cut out shape of choice, making sure you have an even number of cookies
  • Leave half cookies as is and the rest make a hole in the middle
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180 for around 10 mins or until they slightly change color, do not overbake so they don't get crunchy
