I am too tired to write a spill today. Just enjoy my biscuits. Another one of mum’s recipes.

½ cup corn flour - sifted
2 ½ cups plain flour - sifted
1 cup caster sugar
125 g butter
1 orange – grate skin and extract juice
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg yolk – for biscuit mixture
1 egg yolk – lightly beaten (to rub on biscuits)

Preheat oven to 160°C (fan forced oven). Mix flours with baking powder. Set aside.

Beat sugar and butter until creamy. Add in grated skin and 1 egg yolk. Beat until well combined.

Gradually add in sifted flours, followed GRADUALLY by the juice (you may not need to use all of it). Knead into a pliable dough.

Cut a plastic shopping bag into two pieces. Get a big chunk of the dough, make into a ball. Lay one piece of the bag on a smooth counter and place the dough on it. Cover with the other plastic bag and using a rolling pin, roll into ½ cm thickness.

Using a cookie cutter, cut into shapes until all the dough is used up. Place on lined trays, rub the egg yolks on top of the cookies and bake for 10 to 12 mins. Now eat!
