Add yolks and lemon juice, process to combine, turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth (30 seconds). Roll out on a lightly floured piece of baking paper to 6mm thick, refrigerate to rest (30 minutes), then cut out 6cm-diameter rounds with a fluted cutter, re-rolling scraps. Place on an oven tray lined with baking paper, bake until golden on the edges (15-20 minutes), then set aside to cool.

  • Dip warm biscuits in lemon glaze, shake off excess and transfer to an oven tray lined with baking paper. Scatter each with a little lemon salt, stand until set (1 hour), then serve. Biscuits will keep stored in a single layer in an airtight container for 3 days.
