These biscuits are easy to make with limited resources (visualise mixing the dough in a saucepan due to lack of bowls).
2/3 cup icing sugar
2 egg yolks
2 cups plain flour
Finely grated zest of 2 oranges
1/4 cup poppyseeds
Cream together the butter and icing sugar (I did this in a saucepan with a dessert spoon). Mix in the egg yolks until well combined then add the remaining ingredients. Mix gently until it can be formed into a lump of dough. (This could all be done in a food processor - but it was actually really easy to do by hand).
Divide the dough into two and shape into sausages with the aid of gladwrap. Make them have a diameter of about 3-4cm (or smaller or larger depending on how big you want the finished product). I ended up with two rather long sausages so if you are making them skinnier you might want to make three or four sausages instead. Seal them well and then pop into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
At this stage the logs can be frozen and stored for a few months, or refrigerated for up to 3 days.
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Remove the dough from the fridge and slice into 1cm rounds (or squares as mine ended up!).
Place onto a baking sheet. They can be quite close together as they do not spread much at all. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until very lightly golden on the bottom and set.
I made about 60 small biscuits and they are delicious
