… with lemon curd icing!
2 1/4 cups plain flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
175g room temp butter
2tbsp lemon curd
For the icing:
8tbsp icing sugar
1tbsp lemon curd
Mix all the ingredients together until it looks kind of like damp sand.
Squash it together to form a ball of dough.
Put in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for about half an hour to firm up.
Turn oven on to 175C, and line a few baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
Take your dough from the fridge, knead gently until pliable.
Roll out onto a lightly floured surface to about 1/4″ thick.
Cut into shapes and place on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake for about 7 minutes – until only just starting to colour. They will still be a bit soft when you take them out of the oven but will firm up as they cool down. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the lemon curd icing – mix the icing sugar, lemon curd and milk together carefully until smooth. Add more icing sugar if too runny, and a tiny splash more milk if too thick. Ice the biscuits when they’re fully cooled. Yum!
