Plate Events Shares their Wattleseed and Orange Biscuits Recipe!

Indigenous catering company, and Yarpa members, Plate Events are renowned for their delicious recipes and stunning events.

This time, they’re sharing with us their much loved secret recipe – the Wattleseed and Orange biscuits!


185g unsalted butter

230g caster sugar

2 tsp vanilla

1 egg

350g plain flour (extra for rolling)

2 tbsp ground roast wattleseed

zest of 1 orange


  1. Cream the butter, sugar & vanilla in a bowl using an electric mixer until pale and fluffy.
  2. Add the egg, wattleseed and zest and mix on low until combined. Add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon to form a soft dough. Roll out onto bench and if the mix is soft and sticky, add more flour til it’s not, slowly working it into the dough.
  3. Form the dough into a flat disc and cover in cling wrap. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  4. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C and line baking trays with baking paper.
  5. Roll out dough on a lightly floured bench until approximately 5mm thick. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters of your choosing. Lift them gently from bench with a flat knife and place on baking trays. Bake for 8-10mins or until golden around the edges. Remove from oven and allow to cool and harden slightly.
  6. Place in an airtight container for storage. These will last upto 1 week if not eaten prior!

Optional – Decorate with a little melted chocolate for something more indulgent.
