Beltane: Orange Blossom Cookies

Happy Beltane everyone! These cookies have a funny story. I actually baked them last year for beltane but then I lost the picture and didn't blog the recipe. Somewhere later in the year I found the picture again, but I waited until it was Beltane again to post it.

These cookies taste a bit exotic and are a bit of an acquired taste. It might take a bit to get used to. But because next to strawberries, edible flowers are typical used in Beltane dishes, I wanted to try this recipe. The original recipe is from Koken met Karin.

Orange Blossom Cookies: (makes 25)
- 175 gr flour
- 50 gr castor sugar
- 125 gr butter (margarine for vegan)
- 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
- 1 tbsp orange blossom water
- pinch of salt

Mix the butter with both sugars and the orange blossom water until soft. Sift flour and salt above the bowl and mix this with a fork until crumbly. Then make a nice ball of dough with your hands. Shape the dough into a log and wrap it in clingy plastic foil. Put this in the fridge for an hour or longer.
Pre heat the oven to 175 degrees.
Cut the dough with a sharp knife into 0.5 cm slices.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper and place the cookies on there, Leave some space because they will get a bit bigger in the oven. Bake them for about 15 minutes until they are light with a slightly darker edge.
