  • 175g butter, softened
  • 60g golden icing sugar
  • 125g plain flour
  • 60g cornflour
  • tsp ground cardamom or cinnamon, optional
  • About 90g dark chocolate
  • Chopped pistachios, optional
  • Piping bag and 1cm (in) fluted nozzle
  • 2 baking sheets lined with baking parchment

Flavour biscuits with the finely grated zest of an orange, lemon or lime, with or without the spice. Youll need to finely crush 10-12 cardamom pods to get 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom.


  1. Cream the butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy. Sift in the flour, cornflour and spice, if using, and beat well.
  2. Set the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4. Put the mixture in the piping bag and pipe fingers, about 7.5cm long, spaced evenly apart on the paper.
  3. Bake for 15 mins. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  4. Melt the chocolate in a small bowl over a pan of hot water. Dip one or both ends of the fingers in the chocolate and place on paper to set. After dipping in chocolate, you could dip the ends in finely chopped pistachios, if you like.
