Lemon Short Bread

Lemon Short Bread

We had fun with children making these delicious ,crumbly shortbread biscuits.  With a Hint of lemon . If you prefer not the have the lemon that’s fine too. This recipe is a quick easy recipe and the children can cut out their favourite shapes . My Favourite part is when the children get all  stuck in cutting their shapes out and each one owning their cookies . 

Please see the recipe below : 

Lemon Shortbread 

60g unsalted butter, 
softened 30g caster 
sugar ½ lemon, 
finely grated zest 
90g plain flour

1. In a large bowl, beat together the butter until soft then mix in the sugar and lemon zest until pale and creamy. 

2. Sift in the flour and work to a smooth dough . 

3. Roll the dough out to a £1 coin thickness and use a round cookie cutter to stamp out the biscuits. 

Chill the uncooked biscuits in the fridge until firm. Pre-heat oven to fan 170C/ conventional 190C/ gas mark 5. 

Sprinkle the shortbread lightly with a little extra caster sugar and bake for 10-15 minutes until a pale biscuit colour. Leave on a cooling rack to cool . 

TIP** – When rubbing the flour and butter you can use your finger tips and rub against the bowl . When rolling out the cookie dough roll out very gently to prevent the cookie dough to crumble.
