These biscuits are very delicious and are a melt in your mouth and the best thing is the recipe is so easy and fast to make. Add the softened butter in a big bowl then add a pinch of salt and sugar and stir for about three minutes until everything is well combined, you can use a spatula to combine the ingredients. Break in your egg into the batter then add lemon juice and if you don’t want your biscuits to be a little sour, you can add milk instead.

Since you are looking for the signature lemon look, add a teaspoon of lemon flavour, lemon peel, and cardamon. Mix everything until well smooth. Mix flour and baking powder then sift the dry ingredients into the batter in batches while mixing it until the batter has come together. Do not overmix the batter, you want to mix it just until the flour is incorporated into the batter.

It should have a creamy consistency, very soft and sticky. Cover the dough with a cling fling and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight if you are in a hurry then you can refrigerate it for around 40 minutes so that it cools down and is easier to work with. For the filling, you will need condensed milk with sugar then you will add lemon juice, and whisk until the mixture becomes very thick.

Cover with plastic wrap then let it chill in the fridge for about an hour. Remove the chilled dough from the fridge, line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Spoon the dough in your hands and roll it into a ball about 2 to 2.5 cm in diameter then line them on the baking sheet spacing them well because they will become bigger once baked.

Bake the cookies in a preheated oven for about 6 to 7 minutes. Check to see if they are ready by putting a toothpick in the cookies and when they come out clean they are ready. Take them out of the oven and let them cool for about ten minutes. Take your filling from the fridge and place it in a piping bag then fill half of the biscuits and use the other half to coat them. These biscuits will be your favourite if you are a fan of lemon and citrus flavours.
