Information

Tip: Ideal for a teatime or party snack. Delicious with or without the cream filling.

 

Makes: 14 filled biscuits

 

Ingredients:

- 1 lemon
- 100 g soft butter
- 50 g golden caster sugar
- 140 g self raising flour

 

For the filling:

- 50 g soft butter
- 100 g icing sugar
- 2 tsp lemon juice

 

Instructions:

1) Lightly grease 2 baking trays.

 

2) Finely grate the lemon for the zest and put into a bowl with the butter and sugar.

 

3) Beat together until pale.

 

4) Add the flour and mix together.

 

5) Mould the mixture into about 28 small balls – about the size of a small walnut

 

6) Put onto the baking trays and bake for 7-10 minutes at 160C/140C fan/gas 3 until light golden. Keep an eye on them as you don’t want them to go too brown. Leave to cool on the tray.

8) Spoon a little cream onto a cookie and make a sandwich with another biscuit
