‘Lady’s Kisses’ Nutella and orange biscuits

Here we have another classic biscuit, ‘Lady's Kisses’, here enlivened by the taste of Nutella and orange zest, a touch of originality that always distinguishes our recipes. These Nutella and orange pastries are quite delicious: the combination of orange and chocolate lends itself well to the winter season, and is very pleasing to the palate. They are simple and quick to prepare. The ingredients are also suitable for those allergic to lactose because they are made with rice milk; this also makes them very light, balancing the rich chocolate element. They are ideal to give to guests, served with a cup of tea or coffee, for breakfast, or to give away. They are loved by young and old, and especially by everyone who likes Nutella! To make these biscuits, just follow in detail what our chef does in the photo gallery, and you won’t go far wrong.

Preparation

Mix the flour and sugar. Add the milk, egg, honey and orange zest. Finally add the baking powder. Transfer to a pastry board and knead into form a ball. If there’s any need you can add milk to soften, or flour to firm up, the dough. Put the ball of dough in the fridge for 30 minutes. After this time, taking little pieces of the dough one at a time, shape them on the palm of your hand to make lots of little balls that you then arrange on a baking sheet covered with baking parchment. Then bake at 180°C degrees for 10 minutes, or at least until the edges begin to colour, then remove from the oven. Allow to cool. Then take a ball, put a teaspoon of Nutella on the flat side and finish with another ball, again with the flat side to the Nutella filling. Place on a tray and sprinkle with icing sugar.

Tips
The filling of these little biscuits can range from Nutella to any one of our chocolate creams - the result will be just as good. Also, you should choose a dessert wine to go with them, such as a Monferrato, or a sparkling wine such as Alta Long, or a sparkling rosé.
Trivia
The ‘Lady's Kisses’, famous little pastries, were invented more than a century ago in the town of Piedmont, Tortona, and are so called because they are composed of two discs of dough, which bring to mind the image of closed lips puckered up for a kiss.
