Lemon is one of our favourite flavours, and the fruit bowls in our homes are never without this bring yellow citrus, be it for sweet or savoury cooking. Last week we made a simple lemon posset dessert, both sweet and tart. We needed something to pair with it and decided upon a simple butter biscuit, light, crisp and with a good hit of lemon zest.
These biscuits are great to make up in advance, prepare the dough, leave it in the fridge overnight and bake next day. They are also great baked from frozen – just make the dough, slice it up and place in the freezer ready to bake when the mood takes you or you need a sweet treat.
There is no complexity to the biscuit, using the butter biscuit as a base, you can swap the flavours as you see fit. Substitute the lemon for either orange or lime zest or replace it with chocolate chips. Whilst we like the biscuits baked simply you could also dip them in melted chocolate or sandwich two together with butter cream. The list is endless, get creative.
