Lemony Olive Oil Crinkle Biscuits


  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ tspn Baking Powder
  • ½ tspn Baking Soda
  • ½ tspn salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup mild Extra virgin Olive oil
  • 1 bare cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 tspn vanilla essence
  • Approx. ½ cup icing sugar to roll balls in

The dough needs to be prepared and then chilled for an hour to make it easier to handle as it is a sticky dough.


Measure the flour, baking powder and baking soda in a bowl and mix to combine

In another bowl put the sugar, olive oil, lemon juice, zest and vanilla – add the eggs and whisk well to start dissolving the sugar.  Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture a third at a time but be careful not to overmix.

Cover the bowl and chill for approx an hour.

When ready to bake preheat oven to 180C and line a biscuit tray with baking paper.

Put the icing sugar on a small plate.  Spoon up walnut size pieces of dough and roll into a ball. Then roll in the icing sugar and lay them on the tray about an inch apart.  Bake 10-12 mins

Leave on the tray for 5 mins and then place on rack to cool completely. Try not to eat immediately
