Christmas Calendar 2012 Day 10 - Butter cookies with cocoa and orange

For today I have decided to make a "dark" twist to this recipe on butter cookies with lemon by replacing the lemon zest with orange zest and cocoa powder. As usual I am using BUTTER for my butter cookies.

I have to brag about, that I with this particular flavour combination have found a EXCELLENT, PERFECT TASTE !!!!!!

And I continue wit struggle with getting the pressed cookie dough to stick to the baking paper, so if you have suggestion on this topic, please feel free to leave a comment with your advise.

Butter cookie with cocoa and orange:

  • 250 g (cake) flour
  • 50 g (unsweet) cocoa powder
  • 100 icing sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 200 g butter - with ambient temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • zest of 1 organic orange
  1. Heat the (conventional) oven to 200'C.
  2. Add all the ingredients into a bowl, kneaded them together in homogeneous mass.
  3. Shape the dough in smaller rolls.
  4. Fill a roll of cookie dough into the pastry press.
  5. Place the selected shape disk in the ring and screw the pastry press together.
  6. Press the dough onto a baking tray covered with baking paper.
  7. Bake the cookies at 200'C for 8-10 minutes.
  8. Cool down the cookies after baking, before filling the glass jar with your cookie creations.
