Lemon butter biscuits! Quick, easy and satisfying biscuits packed with lemon flavour that melt in your mouth, perfect afternoon treat or to serve alongside a dinner party dessert.
Lemon is one of our favourite flavours and these lemon butter biscuits pack a punch of lemon flavour. Fruit bowls in our homes are never without this bright yellow citrus, be it for sweet or savoury cooking. Last week we made a simple lemon posset dessert, both sweet and tart. As a result, 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.
Even more, there is no complexity to the biscuit, using the butter biscuit as a base, you can swap the flavours as you see fit. Likewise the lemon can be substituted 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, get creative!
Certainly, these simple lemon butter biscuits are the perfect accompaniment to our lemon posset to finish off any dinner party.
