Sweet and sour in taste, these delicious organic treats offer the perfect mid morning break, bound to bring out the sweet side in any boss
Basic biscuit dough
250g unsalted organic butter
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup (160g) icing sugar, sifted
2 cups (300g) plain flour
1 organic egg white, beaten until foamy
¼ cup (55g) caster sugar
2 organic eggs, lightly beaten
½ cup (110g) caster sugar
grated rind of 1 organic lemon
¼ cup (60ml) organic lemon juice
30g organic butter
Preheat oven to moderate 180°C. Roll level teaspoons of chilled basic biscuit dough into balls and place on prepared trays. Press down with a fork which has been dipped in cold water to prevent sticking.
Bake for 12 minutes, until just beginning to colour. Cool on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container.
Meanwhile, make lemon butter. Place all ingredients in a heavy based saucepan on medium heat. Stir constantly for 5-10 minutes, until thick. Try not to boil as the mixture will curdle. Remove from heat and cool completely, stirring occasionally.
Just before serving, join biscuits in pairs with ½ teaspoon of lemon butter between each.
