Ingredients

  • Basic biscuit dough:
  • 250g unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup (160g) icing sugar, sifted
  • 2 cups (300g) plain flour
  • 1 eggwhite, beaten until foamy
  • ¼ cup (55g) caster sugar
  • Lemon Butter
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup (110g) caster sugar
  • grated rind of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup (60ml) lemon juice
  • 30g butter

Preparation method

1. Preheat oven to moderate 180°C. Roll level teaspoons of chilled Basic Biscuit Dough into balls and place on prepared trays. Press down with a fork which has been dipped in cold water to prevent sticking.

2. Bake for 12 minutes, until just beginning to colour. Cool on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container.

3. Meanwhile, make Lemon Butter. Place all ingredients in a heavy based saucepan on medium heat. Stir constantly for 5-10 minutes, until thick. Do not allow to boil as the mixture will curdle. Remove from heat and cool completely, stirring occasionally.

4. Just before serving, join biscuits in pairs with ½ teaspoon of Lemon Butter between each.

Store the biscuits in an airtight container, the butter in the fridge and join only as many as you intend to use at a time.
