Powdered sugar biscuits


This simple recipe produces a deceptively light, crumbly biscuit ideal with a cup of tea or coffee.

You'll need

230 gm (1 cup) unsalted butter, coarsely chopped and softened 110 gm (½ cup) white sugar 1 egg yolk ½ tsp finely grated lemon rind ¼ tsp ground cinnamon 300 gm (2 cups) plain flour To serve: icing sugar

Method

  • 01
  • Beat butter until pale and fluffy, then stir through sugar, egg yolk and lemon rind. Sift together cinnamon and flour, stir into mixture and gently knead until smooth.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Roll 2 tsp of dough into balls and place on baking paper-lined oven trays and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack and dust heavily with icing sugar. Biscuits will keep in an airtight container for 3 days.
