Gluten Free Lemon Biscuits


We bought a lemon tree before we had kids, and it has been some what forgotten in the blur of sleepless nights, endless loads of washing and overall joy/fear of being a parent. Needless to say it has bore no fruit.  My husband gave it a very rough pruning and a bit of citrus fertiliser, among other things and hey presto our first fruit!.  Who knew the poor thing just needed some attention :(.  Anyway I wanted to make something featuring our lovely lemons, and came up with some lovely little lemon biscuits.  They have just the right among of tart vs sweetness.  Enjoy:)


125 butter

1/2 cup caster sugar

1 egg

2 cups GF plain flour

1/2 cup almond meal

zest of 1 lovely lemon

1 tbs lemon juice

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp bi -carb

How To Do It:

Preheat oven to 180c and line  2 baking trays with baking paper.  Cream together the butter and sugar, then add the egg.  Add the zest and juice of your lovely lemon.  Proceed to sift over the flours and add the almond meal.  You should be able to roll out tablespoons full of mixture and place on baking trays.   Flatten with a fork (or your thumb), and bake for 12-15 minutes.  This mixture gets about 30 cookies depending on how big you want them.  Happy Baking:)
