How to make Petit Beurre - Chocolate Orange Treats

  • Ingredients
    • 160g plain flour
    • 100g chilled butter
    • 65g golden caster sugar
    • 1 tsp orange flavouring
    • 1 large egg
    • 250g + 50g of milk chocolate
  • To Make the Base

    Tip the flour into a food processor. Cut the butter into small pieces and drop them into the bowl. Mix until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Add the sugar, orange and egg yolk then mix to form a dough. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

    To bake, preheat the oven to 180°C and roll out the dough to 3mm thickness on a lightly dusted surface. Cut out the biscuits using the cutter stamp and place them onto a greased baking tray. Place in the middle shelf of the oven and bake for approximately 8 minutes or until lightly browned.

    Transfer the biscuits onto a cooling rack to cool.

  • To Make the Chocolate Topping

    Melt and temper 250g of the chocolate in a bain-marie. Stir the chocolate until nearly melted and then remove the bowl from the heat, add the remaining chocolate and carry on stirring until completely melted.

    Using a teaspoon, fill the moulds with chocolate until they are full. Allow to cool at room temperature for 10 minutes and then place in a fridge until hardened.

    Once hard, gently remove the chocolate from the mould and trim with a knife. Repeat the process until you have enough chocolate toppings for the number of biscuits required.

    To attach the chocolate to the biscuit, spread a thin layer of chocolate on the top of the cookie and press the chocolate tablet on top.
