Ingredients for about 30 biscuits:
150 g butter
130 g icing sugar
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.
