Ingredients
  1. 200g softened butter
  2. 149g caster sugar
  3. 1 egg yolk
  4. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  5. Zest 2 lemons, juice of 1
  6. 280g plain flour pus extra for rolling
  7. 1/2 jar good lemon curd (I used Highfield Preserves)
  8. 140g icing sugar
  9. Raspberries to decorate (optional)
Instructions
  1. Stir together the butter, sugar, egg yolk, vanilla and zest from 1 lemon with a wooden spoon. Stir in the flour. You will need to bring the mixture together with your hands at the end. Tip into a floured surface and bring together into a smooth dough. Roll out half at a time and stamp out 5-6cm rounds. Arrange on lined baking trays and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. When the biscuits are chilling preheat your oven to 200C/gas 6. Bake the biscuits for about 9 minutes. Watch them like a hawk as they burn very quickly.
  3. Once cool arrange the biscuits on wire racks. Mix together the icing sugar and enough juice from a lemon to give a runny consistency. Drizzle the icing over the biscuits and top with a raspberry.
