Here comes some nice little biscuits that I originally made to come with an India dessert. They are also very good with tea or coffee.
The idea of mixing linseeds and orange came from some biscuits I bought in an organic shop with a mix of flavor from orange biscuits that I bought at my work place.
I like to eat some of those biscuits for breakfast, doing like French use to do with croissant: dipping it into the hot coffee.

Linseed and orange biscuits


300 gr / 10.5 oz flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
125 gr / 4.5 oz softened butter
100 gr / 3.5 oz sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
half an orange juice
1 orange peel
40 gr / 1.5 oz linseeds

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Sift together the flour and baking powder, and add the linseed and the orange peel.
Cream sugar and butter and add the egg, the egg yolk and the orange juice
and mixed all together.

Stir the flour mixture into butter mixture until well blended and smooth.
Roll the pastry into sausage form and put it into a plastic film,
And put in the fridge for an hour.

Cut the pastry sausage into biscuits.
And bake for around 10 minutes.
