Lemon butter shortbreads ®

My own recipe. Cookies are really soft, deliciously fresh and quickly gone!

Preparation time 10 minutes .. Baking 20-25 minutes .. Durability few weeks

INGREDIENTS .. 4 baking sheets

  • 300 g plain flour
  • 200 g milky butter
  • 110 g extra fine granulated sugar
  • zest of 2 lemons


Preheat the oven to 150°C.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a bowl cream together the butter, the sugar and zest a whole lemon. Add the flour in a little at a time. When it becomes a ball, topple into onto a floured surface. Roll out to about 0,75 cm thickness, dusting the rolling pin as necessary to prevent sticking.

Place the cookies on the baking sheet and bake until shortbreads just begins to turn golden, about 6-8 minutes.

Cool them down and enjoy!
