Easy lemon biscuits
These delightful biscuits are irresistible and so simple to make. 

175g plain flour

1 lemon, grated zest only

110g soft butter

50g sugar

Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 4

Combine the flour and lemon rind in a mixing bowl and rub in the softened butter.

Add the caster sugar and mix well to form a firm dough. Don’t be tempted to add any water to the mixture, it should look dry. Roll out the dough until about ½ cm thickness and cut into shapes with a cookie cutter.

Transfer to a baking tray and bake for about 6-10 minutes until they are a pale golden colour and light to the touch.

Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. 

Dust with icing sugar if desired.
