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.
