English Lemon Biscuits/Cookies

These are great to have with a cup of tea - maybe it's because I'm British? Anyway, they're very buttery & lemony. They're refreshing in the Spring/Summer & are great to use as a base of individual cheese cakes. I make a batch in no time & by the time they've cooled they've vanished! The mixture is also great to keep in the fridge for a couple of days & it also freezes well. You could also sprinkle the top of the biscuits with sugar as soon as you take out from the oven.
