Sunday afternoon and the biscuit bottles are empty...
...so I baked some of these delicious biscuits...
You will need:
250gr soft butter
2 large eggs
1200ml cake flour
7,5ml baking powder
50ml finely grated lemon zest
25ml lemon juice
50ml poppy seeds
Beat the softened butter and sugar together until light in colour - add the eggs and beat well.
Add the lemon rind and lemon juice and mix in.
Sift in the dry ingredients and mix lightly to form a soft dough.
Mix in the poppy seeds.
Roll into small balls and press flat with the palm of your hands.
Place on a greased baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven
at 180 degrees Celsius for approx 10 -12 minutes.
Enjoy with a cup of tea.
