Lemon Curd Biscuits


150 g (6 oz) plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
100 g (4 oz) cornflour
100 g (4 oz) butter
100 g (4 oz) caster sugar#2 egg yolks
Grated rind of 2 (washed) lemons

Sift the flour, baking powder and cornflour into a mixing bowl.  Melt the butter and stir into the sugar, egg yolks and lemon rind.  Add the flour and mix all the ingredients together to give a smooth biscuit dough.  Roll into a “sausage”, wrap in cling film and chill briefly in fridge – not too long or it goes like concrete!

Preheat the oven to moderately hot (200 deg. C/400 deg. F, Gas Mark 6).  Roll out the dough onto a floured surface to 3mm (1/8” thick).  Place the biscuits onto a greased baking tray and bake for about 10 mins.  Cool slightly then lift with a knife onto a wire rack to cool.

  1. Mmm! From the States, but I have a SOS who hates sweets, preferring lemon. This sounds like just the right snack! Thank you for sharing.
