Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Cream the butter and sugar 1 min / SP 4

    2. Add vanilla essence 30 secs / SP 4

    3. Weigh in flour and cornflour. Mix 20 secs / SP 6. Scrape down sides and repeat.

    4. Scrape out of bowl and tip mixture onto a thermomat. Continue to mix by hand until the dough forms a soft ball that isn't sticky (It won't stick to your hands). You may need to add a little extra flour.

    5. Take small pieces of dough and roll them into balls about the size of a large grape, or 15 grams. Lay them on a baking tray lined with baking paper, alowing space for them to spread. Lightly press with a fork.

    6. Bake for 15 mins at 160 degrees fan forced, or until the biscuits "slide" on the baking tray when pushed. Try not to brown them. allow to cool completely before icing. Whilst cooling, make icing.

  2. Zesty Lemon Icing
  3. 1. Insert butterfly into clean bowl.

    2. Whip butter until pale, about 1 min / Sp 3. 

    3. Add Icing sugar mixture and lemon zest. Mix 30 secs / SP 3.

    4. While mixing, juice both lemons into the lid using the MC to stop seeds going in.

    5. Place icing into a large piping bag, and aset aside somewhere cool until the biscuits are completely cooled. It needs to be a little firm to create a piping pattern.

    6. Starting on the outside rim, pipe a snail of icing onto an upturned biscuit. Place another on top to form the lid.Repeat until all are done. 

    7. Dust heavily with icing sugar



These perfectly complement a cup of tea!
