Lemon Kisses

I love the name of this biscuits!! *LEMON KISSES*

In the January 2011 issue of Good Food Magazine is a recipe for Lemon biscuits sandwiched together with lemon curd and then drizzled with lemony icing… Hello Summer!!

In terms of simplicity of ingredients… this recipe does not disappoint… (and I was extra lazy and used lemon juice instead of juicing my own lemons… in all fairness – it wasn’t because I didn’t want to, it was because I didn’t have any fresh lemons and I was in the mood to bake at 7am (before the shops were open!))

Lemon Kisses

200g soft butter

140g caster sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg yolk

zest of 2 lemons, juice of 1 lemon

280g plain flour (plus extra for rolling)

1/2 jar lemon curd

140g icing sugar, sifted

  1. stir together butter, sugar, egg yolk, vanilla and zest from 1 lemon using a wooden spoon.
  2. Stir in the flour
  3. Tip onto floured surface, bring together into a smooth dough, then roll out (half at a time) and stamp out 5-6cm rounds
  4. Arrange on trays lined with baking parchment, cover with clingfilm and chill for 30min.
  5. Bake at 200C for 8-12minutes
  6. Once cool, spread half the biscuits with lemon curd and top with second biscuit.
  7. Arrange biscuits on wire racks over trays.
  8. Mix enough lemon juice with icing sugar to make a runny icing and drizzle over biscuits.
  9. Scatter some lemon zest… and leave to set.
