For holidays “don’t eat this, it’s Christmas Eve” you can prepare delicious butter-orange cookies. They are so addictive that they will satisfy the needs of all stealthy eaters.
Orange contains a lot of beta-carotene, vitamin C and water. Water rinses away toxins from the body and vitamin C is a valued antioxidant (it neutralizes aggressive oxygen molecules caused by stress, smoking, alcohol or a small amount of sleep). One orange covers the daily requirement for vitamin C.
- 200g margarine
- 4 glasses of wholegrain wheat flour
- half a glass of sugar
- peel rubbed off from one orange
- 1 egg
Ingredients for icing:
- icing sugar (the amount depends on how much icing we want to get)
- 2 teaspoons of orange juice
- hot water
Cream the margarine with sugar into a light cream. Add orange peel. Sift the flour and add to the butter mass. Mix the whole with a spoon to make a homogeneous dough. Leave them in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Then roll out the already cooled dough on a floured countertop about 0.5 cm thick. Cut out your favourite shape with a baking mold.
Bake for about 10 minutes in 170 degrees on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Finally, prepare the glaze by adding icing sugar and juice to the hot water. Mix all the ingredients. Decorate the cookies when they cool down.
