These easy biscuits use have lemon juice and fresh grated lemon peel. They are baked until golden brown, crisp and delicious. Great for afternoon tea.
Makes: 12 biscuits
1 cup (220g) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated lemon peel
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
- Preheat oven to 190 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla. Add lemon juice, peel and mix until smooth. In a separate bowl mix flour, powder and soda. Mix the dry into the wet mixture then stir well to combine.
- Roll into balls, about a tablespoon a piece then place on prepared baking tray then bake in the preheated oven until done, about 12-14 minutes.
this dough was way to wet and sticky to roll into balls. I ended up spreading it on a parchment lined cookie sheet, but they turned out greasy. Something is flawed with the ingredients

Biscuits turned out beautifully crisp and tasted delicious. Very lemony. I followed the recipe exactly and had no problems.
