Named by my children,who go mad for these (as does everybody who tries them!),these are deliciously light little butter cookies,that are very easy to make.Sandwich two together with a little butter cream and jam and a dusting of icing sugar for an afternoon tea,or drizzle them with plain chocolate for a coffee break treat..or enjoy them just as they are!!
- 125 g butter
- 1⁄3 cup icing sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1⁄2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
- 1 teaspoon cream
- 1⁄2 cup cornflour
- 1⁄2 cup plain flour
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy.Add essence,rind and cream,beat until combined.
- Add the sifted flours and beat until the mixture is smooth enough to pipe.
- Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a 1.5cm star nozzle.Pipe 4cm lengths onto the tray.
- Bake for 10-15 mins until lightly golden.
These were very easy to put together. I wound up putting a little more cream in the recipe to get the ingredients to stick together. I might have put a little too much icing sugar in because I find it hard to measure. The lemon adds a wonderful flavor to a light and slightly sweet cookie or biscuit. Made for PRMR.
