Last month during a trip to Cornwall I was lucky enough to eat some very yummy Lemon biscuits. Naturally I wanted to make some myself on return home, but all the recipes I could find involved sandwiching two plain biscuits between a layer of Lemon Curd. So we set about creating our own recipe. The end result was so successful that I thought I’d share it here. These little biscuits melt in the mouth and have a delicate buttery Lemon taste.
- 250g/8oz Butter
- 200g/7oz Caster Sugar (plus extra for sprinkling)
- 1 Egg
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 Tsp Lemon Juice
- 450-500g/15-17oz Plain Flour
- 5 Tbsp Lemon Curd
Preheat your oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4. Beat the butter, sugar, egg, Vanilla Extract and Lemon juice Together in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
Spoon in the Lemon curd and mix gently, then begin to fold in the flour. Note. The exact amount of flour needed can vary slightly depending on the thickness of your Lemon Curd. Eventually you will need to knead the dough with your hands to fully combine. You have the right consistency when the dough is coming cleanly away from the sides of the bowl.
Roll out to about 1cm thick. Then cut out in whatever shape you like. Place onto a baking tray and cook for approx 13 minutes until lightly golden on top. Sprinkle with a little extra caster sugar before cooling.
Enjoy your yummy creations!
