Biscuits With Bubbles

Yesterday I ended up doing a touch of unexpected weekend baking. As you do, I had a bar of Orange Aero kicking around in the fridge and thought I'd make these...

Clockwise from Top Left
The dough
The Cookies
The most important ingredient
 The Guy discovered Orange Aero, he rocked up here one evening with a bar, and I've been addicted ever since. Personally, I think it's best chilled.

The recipe for these is pretty simple... You will need:
250g Butter
140g Caster Sugar
1 Egg Yolk
300g Plain Flour

I added 1 whole 110g bare of Orange Aero too, but you could put other chocolate, dried fruit or whatever you fancied in it.


Pre-heat oven to 180C

Soften butter and beat sugar into it until smooth.
Add the egg yolk and beat into the butter and sugar mix.
Add half of the flour a little at a time and mix.
Break up your Ornage Aero (or whatever you're adding) into small chunks (I used a knife and cut it so the chunks were roughly half the size of the pre-moulded pieces).
Mix goodies through your incomplete mix so that said goodies are evenly distributed.
Continue to add the remaining flour bit by bit. You may need to get your hands in there as the last of the flour goes in.

Break off pieces of dough in size of your choice (I went for golf ball size) and roll into a ball.
Lay onto a non-stick tray or tray with baking parchment and lightly push down on balls of dough so they are almost flat. Remember to leave plenty of room between each cookie on the tray because they will spread a bit.

Cook for 12-15 minutes- I like to check mine at the 10 minute mark.
Cool on a wire baking tray.

Does it produce the sort of consistency dough that you could freeze half and then bake at a later date? I keep seeing that recommended in American recipes but I'm not sure if it's something that's safe for all.
