Here's my weekly food inspiration. Oh! so gorgeous White Chocolate and Orange Butter Biscuits

When a baking recipe relies heavily upon butter for its flavour, use the finest butter you can as you will taste the difference.

Also, butter biscuits and shortbread will taste better if you can leave them in a cool place, in an airtight container for two to three days before enjoying; it allows butter's heavenly flavours to work their magic.

4.Bake in the pre-heated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are just browning on the edges. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Join with butter icing when cold and dust with icing sugar to serve.
5.Butter Icing: Beat together 100 grams butter and 1 1/2 cups icing sugar to make a smooth icing. Flavour with vanilla essence and thin with a dash of milk if wished.

Check out the link to her pic of them, in heart shapes.
Really opens up some good thoughts re shapes one can have and this recipe is suitable to do this.

This is often requested in here, that is something for those special occasions like kiddies birthdays etc.

Cheers
