All about little old me

43 years old, one wonderful daughter and husband. I love craft, card making, scrapbooking, jewellery making, altered art. I been crafting for about 8 years or so and moving house 6 years ago allowed me the space of my own craftroom. (Much to the annoyance of my husband!)

Lemon Kisses

Lemon Kisses recipe

Makes about 20 (not when you use a bigger cookie cutter though?!)

200g/7oz soft butter
140g/5oz caster sugar
1 egg yolk
1tsp vanilla extract
zest & juice of 1 lemon
280g/10oz plain flour, plus some for rolling
half jar lemon curd
140g/5oz icing sugar

1. Stir together the butter, sugar, egg yolk, vanilla and lemon zest from 1 lemon using a wooden spoon. Stir in flour using your hands at the end to bring the mixture together. Tip out onto a floured surface, make a smooth dough, then roll out to about 1cm thick and cut into shapes with a cookie cutter ( I used a heart shape, but stars would be great for Christmas time) Arrange on baking trays and leave to chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Bake biscuits for 8-12 mins until pale golden in colour, then cool on wire rack. Once cool spread with lemon curd and sandwich 2 biscuits together. Next mix lemon juice into icing sugar to a runny consistency then dizzle over the biscuits leave to set.

Final step sit down and eat with a nice cup of tea, yum yum!
