Vic's Lemon Biscuits Recipe
5th August 2013
Participants of Rotoroa's volunteer days are usually in for a
culinary as well as an environmental treat - home baking prepared
by Rotoroa staff.
Our last day in June was enthusiastically attended by around 40
volunteers - one of whom put in a plea for Vic's lemon biscuit
recipe, so here it is:
1/2 cup sugar
3 cups plain flour
2 - 3 teaspoons grated lemon rind
These are a lovely shortbread-sytle biscuit which are not too
sweet. If you like a stronger lemon flavour, add more lemon
Cream the butter and sugar; add the egg, lemon rind and beat well.
Sift flour into creamed mixture.
Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead lightly. Roll
dough out to about 5mm thickness; cut out rounds using a 5cm scone
or biscuit cutter.
Place on a greased oven tray, bake at 190°C for 12-15 minutes or
until pale golden. Dust with icing sugar. Yum!
