Orange flavoured cookies


1 cup all purpose flour/maida
1/2 cup vanaspati/shortening
3/4 cup sugar powdered
1 tsp orange essence
1 tsp orange zest (if you have)
Pinch of orange colour
Sieve the sugar and flour together to remove any lumps. Add the essence, zest and mix well. Add the colour to the vanaspati, mix and then add it little by little to the flour mix. Keep mixing till you get a dough. Make small balls of it and flatten them a bit.

Preheat oven to 180 deg. Arrange the flattened balls leaving some gap between each biscuit. Bake in convention mode for 8 mins. Cool for 10 minutes before storing in an air tight container.

* I didnt have orange zest yet the essence gave a good orange flavour to the biscuit..If you have them you can include the zest too for more flavour..
