These are a soft biscuit with a lovely subtle flavour. The glaze gives a zing of citrus. Diet friendly(ish). Australian measurements used.

These were quite easy to make & came out great. They taste yummy & look pretty, particularly with the grated orange rind in the icing. Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #10. Thanks Mischka for sharing this keeper.
