Chocolate Orange Thins
|Unsalted butter||2 Ounce (50 g)|
|Orange||1 , grated rind|
|Unsweetened cocoa powder||3 Tablespoon|
|Caster sugar||5 Ounce (5 g)|
|Eggs||2 , beaten|
|Chopped almonds||5 Ounce (150 g)|
|Cornflour||1 1⁄2 Tablespoon|
Melt the butter and grate the orange rind.
Using a wooden spoon, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until you have a smooth, evenly textured dough.
Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F), gas mark 4.
Put small pieces of dough onto baking sheet lined with nonstick baking parchment and use a spoon to flatten the pieces into rounds, making them as thin as possible.
Bake in the preheated oven until they turn a slightly darker colour - keep a close watch.
Take them out of the oven and remove one at a time from the baking sheet, quickly shaping them into a 'tile' by laying them across a rolling pin while still hot.
Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
