step 2

Add the oil and eggs and mix with a spoon and then briefly knead the mixture with your hands until it forms a dough.

Avoid kneading for too long as the dough will become chewy and hard. If the dough is too dry, add a bit of water or if it is too moist, add a bit of flour.

step 3

Add the cocoa and orange essence to the dough and knead just until they are well combined.
Roll the dough into a ball, place it in a bowl and in the fridge to chill for 20 minutes. Allowing the dough to rest in the fridge will reduce the risk of spreading when cooking the biscuits.

step 4

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the dough between two sheets of baking paper and roll it out. Flour your cookie cutters and then cut out your shapes, leaving a bit of space between them. Roll out the extra dough and repeat the cooking cutting above.

step 5

Put the cut out shapes on the baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove the biscuits from the oven only when they are firm on top but not hard and place them on a wire cooling rack to cool down and crisp up for about 15 minutes.
