Today in Sweet Saturday:

Lemon and Almond Biscuits

  • 155gr of melted butter
  • 225 gr sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • zest of 1 lemon or 1/2 a teaspoon
  • 6 teaspoons of ground almonds
  • 170gr of self raising flour
Mix the butter and the sugar, add the egg, the zest of lemon and the ground almonds. Finally mix, in 3 steps, the flour in. Leave to cool for half an hour. Preheat the oven to 150-170°C.

Once cooled divide the dough in walnut size heaps on a buttered baking tray. Leave at least 5cm of space in between each heap, else you end up with one big biscuit ;-)
Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
