  • 2 cups Plain flour
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate soda
  • Pinch salt
  • Grated rind of 1 orange
  • ¾ cup Moro Delicado Light Taste Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Moro Pure Spray Primero Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2/3 cup sugar, extra
  • ¼ cup pine nuts

Combine flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda, salt and grated orange rind in a bowl. Make a well in the center and mix in Moro Delicado Light Taste Olive Oil, orange juice and vanilla. Roll teaspoonfuls of mixture into balls and coat in extra sugar. Place onto oven trays that have been sprayed with Moro Pure Spray Primero Extra Virgin Olive Oil, allowing 12 to a tray as they will spread. Flatten slightly and press pine nuts into the surface of each biscuit. Bake at 180°C for 15 minutes until golden around the edges. Allow to cool on trays for 2 minutes before carefully removing onto wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container to keep them fresh.


- Substitute any other nut for pine nuts, such as pistachios, almonds and hazelnuts.
- Lemon can also be used instead of orange.
