  • 1 egg yolk

  • 140g icing sugar sifted

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 140g caster sugar

  • 1 zest of 1 lemon

  • 300g plain flour

  • 250g butter softened

  • 1 zest of 2 lemons

  • 4 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon, then add the egg yolk and vanilla and briefly beat to combine.
  3. Sift over the flour and zest of 2 lemons and stir until the mixture is well combined - you might need to get your hands in at the end to give everything a really good mix and press the dough together.
  4. Chill for about 1/2 an hour in the fridge (the dough that is, not you, unless it's a very hot day).
  5. After chilling, roll out the dough to a rough rectangle, then use a pizza cutter or knife to divide the dough into long strips, about 10 x 2cm.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  7. For the icing, mix 140g sifted icing sugar with 4-5 tbsp lemon juice and the zest 1 lemon. When biscuits are cool, half dip them into the icing, then dry on a rack.
