So we decided to make our Christmas more special and interesting this year . It is a citrusy Christmas for us  , inspired by our love for our Petitgrain candle . The fragrance revolves around  the orange tree  . Imagine on a chilly winter morning , you take a walk by the orange tree , you can smell the citrusy orange , which is slightly bitter , slightly sweet with some woody undertones . And so we wanted to translate this into Bakery . A unique idea , isnt it ?



And after a couple of trials , we finally found a cookie recipe . We would love to share it with all of you . Here is the receipe :

Ingredients : 


1 medium orange ( 1/3 cup orange juice )

1 tbsp orange zest / 1 tsp lemon zest 

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 

1/2 cup besan 

1 tbsp corn starch 

a pinch of salt 

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup brown sugar 

1/2 tsp baking powder 

1/4 tsp baking soda


Topping : 

white chocolate 

orange zest 



take a bowl and mix orange juice , brown sugar , olive oil . Whisk till the sugar is completely dissolved .

Sieve whole wheat flour , corn starch , baking powder , baking soda together .

Add orange zest and some lemon zest . Now add besan .

Mix eevrything together and make a soft dough .

Make small bowls and place it on a cookie tray .

Bake at 200 degree celcius for about 15-20 min ( depending on your oven )

Once done , let them cool .

Melt some white chcoloate on a double boiler . Drizzle it on the cookie and sprinkle some orange zest for the tangy flavour . 

And there you have some lovely citrusy Christmas cookies . Yeahhh ,,, We dont say that we did complete justice to the beautiful fragrance Petitgrain , but it was quite close . 





Have a Lovely Christmas everyone and do share your cookie image ,, we would love to see them :)
