  • Biscuit dough

    Place the butter in a bowl, whisk in the sugar and salt. Add the eggs one at a time and continue to whisk until the mixture becomes lighter in colour. Add the lemon zest and flour, mix into a dough using a wooden spoon, flatten a little. Cover the biscuit dough and chill for at least 2 hrs.
  • To shape

    Remove the dough from the fridge approx. 15 mins. prior to rolling. On a lightly floured surface or between a cut-open plastic bag, roll out the dough in batches to approx. 7 mm thick. Cut out popular shapes (e.g. heart), place the biscuits on two trays lined with baking paper. Chill the biscuits for approx. 15 mins.
  • To glaze

    Whisk the egg yolk with the water, glaze the biscuits with the egg wash. Optional: to decorate, gently drag a fork diagonally across the glazed biscuits prior to baking.
  • To bake each tray

    Approx. 10 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 200°C. Remove from the oven, leave to cool on a cooling rack.
  • Shelf life:

    Keep in an airtight tin for approx. 2 weeks.
