I'm really not one to bow to peer pressure, but in the interest of sharing in all good things, here is the recipe for Orange and Polenta Biscuits. The original recipe states that it yields about 25 biscuits. My batter somehow became very fruitful and multiplied itself, as I got 110 biscuits out of them! I shaped the dough into balls 1.5cm in diameter, so I guess depending on how small or large you portion the dough, you will get approximately 25 to 100 biscuits out of it.
Orange and Polenta Biscuits
170g unsalted butter
100g plain all-purpose flour
zest of 2-3 oranges, finely chopped
2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 190C. Combine butter, sugar, polenta and flour in a bowl and rub them together until the mixture becomes crumbly. Mix in the orange zest and two eggs and beat until well incorporated.
If necessary, cover the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge until slightly firm. Take a portion of dough and roll it into a ball and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Space the balls approximately 5 cm apart, as the biscuits will spread upon baking.
Bake in the oven for 6-10 minutes, or until the outside edges are lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
NOTE: I found that there was no need to refrigerate the dough as I was baking these on a very cold day and the dough was firm enough. This step is optional, depending on the temperature in your kitchen.
