LEMON BISCUITS



Ingredients for about 30 biscuits:  

150 g butter 
130 g icing sugar 
2 lemons
250 g plain flour 
20 g cornflour 
1 pinch of salt 
1 teaspoon vanilla essence 
 Icing sugar to decorate

In a bowl mix the butter with the sugar,  the grated lemon peel, the lemon juice and the pinch of salt.

Work the mixture until it reaches a creamy texture, then add the flour, the cornflour and the vanilla essence and continue to work it until it just holds together. Form a  few 3 cm diameter sausages, then wrap them in cling film and let them rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until they've become hard.

When 2 hours have passed, take them out of the fridge and cut them into 1 cm slices.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 ° for about 10 minutes, or until golden; when lukewarm roll them in icing sugar and serve.
