Instructions
  1. Wash and thoroughly dry the orange before zesting. Juice the orange after you have zested it. Pour the juice into a large cup. Set the zest aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the flour with the baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, salt and zest. Set aside.
  3. Add the baking soda into the cup with the orange juice and mix thoroughly.
  4. Pour the olive oil, wine and grape molasses into a large bowl. Add the fizzling orange juice and mix well. Little by little add the solids to the liquids. Place plastic wrap over the bowl. Let the dough rest before shaping and chill in the fridge for 20'.
  5. Preheat oven to 180°C or 356°F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl in order to create crunchy on the outside biscuits with chewy cinnamon sugar coating.
  6. Take lumps of biscuit dough and roll them into 70-80 walnut-sized balls. Gently pat each dough ball flat with your fingers. Toss them through the cinnamon sugar so that they are fully coated. Place the biscuits on the baking sheets.
  7. Bake the biscuits for 15-20', or until they are golden-brown. Bear in mind that the amount of time that you will need to bake the biscuits depends on the shape of the biscuits and the temperature of the oven.
Recipe Notes

Tea pairing

For the tea lovers and fanatics who passionately seek food and tea pairings and yearn to explore the dynamic between the aromas and flavors we find in teas and food, I firmly recommend a herbal saffron tea with cinnamon and clove as the perfect sipping partner; this exotic tea is ideal for these molasses biscuits. You can make cinnamon, clove and saffron tea by adding 3 threads of saffron, a small cinnamon stick and a whole clove into a cup filled with boiling water. Saffron has an earthy, yet sweet flavor that seems to enhance the sweet citrus aroma of the biscuits. This exotic saffron tea with its uniquely sensual aroma of cinnamon and clove has a naturally sweet taste and the fullness of flavors a cinnamon stick and a whole clove can offer, and goes wonderfully with the delicious cinnamon and clove spiced biscuits.
