Lemon Melting Moments

20140918_185236~2These lemon cookies are a delicious take on your average melting moment cookie. I really love the zingy taste of the lemon in this recipe, this mixture definitely doesn’t lack lemony taste!

 

Ingredients

220g butter

1/2 cup icing sugar

zest of 2 lemons

1/4 cup custard powder

1/4 cup cornflour

1 1/2 cups plain flour

Method

Cream butter, sugar and lemon zest together. Add the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture and stir until combined. add a splash of milk if mixture is too dry. Roll teaspoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on a greased tray. Flatten the biscuits with a floured fork and bake in the oven at 170C for around 15 minutes until cookies are lightly coloured. Let cookies cool before icing.

Icing:

30g butter

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1 1/3 cups icing sugar

Beat butter and lemon juice together. Slowly mix in the icing sugar until the mixture resembles a smooth, thick icing. Spread the icing over the base of one biscuit and do the same to another, then sandwich together and you’re done!
