Les biscuits au citron...c'est si bon!

I fell in love with these cookies because they looked so pretty. I rushed to amazon to buy the little book which comes with the stamp!  Here is the link-   It is in french though, but I am translating the recipe for you below with some modifications.

It is a little book...soooooo cute.

The ingredients: - makes about 12 cookies
  • One lemon zested
  • 80 g of butter
  • 120 g of sugar
  • one egg
  • 180 g of sifted flour
  • powdered sugar
  • jar of lemon curd

Grate the lemon zest

In a bowl work the butter with a spatula

Add the sugar and work until incorporated

Add the lemon zest and keep mixing
Add the flour a little at a time to mix in well
If it is difficult - work in with your hands
cover the dough with plastic and let it rest in the fridge for 30 min.
Preheat the oven to 350°
Line a cookie tray with parchment paper

Remove the dough from the fridge and roll with a rolling pin to 5 mm thick
Find a cookie cutter or glass that is roughly the same size as the stamp - if you are using it- you don't have to use these stamps of course and you can just make round cookies...but they are soooo cute!

Cut out the rounds and place them on the cookies sheet about 1 inch apart
 I put them in the fridge again for 10 minutes
Remove from the fridge and bake for 10 min.
Let cool on a wire  rack.  
When completely cooled, I sprinkled mine with a little powdered sugar
Spread the lemon curd on half of the biscuit and stick it together with the other half

Until we bake again....
Rendez-vous à la prochaine recette....
