- 450g softened butter
- 300g caster sugar
- 500g self raising flour
- rind of 1 orange
- 2 large eggs
- 175g roughly chopped pecans
- Combine butter, sugar, flour rind and eggs and mix until smooth. Stir through pecans.
- Divide mixture into three portions and roll each portion into a log with a 5cm diameter and wrap the logs in baking paper. Twist the ends to seal and then cover in plastic wrap. Surplus can be frozen and defrosted in the fridge at a later stage.
