Home-made Lemon Biscuits

I much prefer homemade biscuits to bought biscuits and these are very easy and perhaps one of my favourites. They are small, perhaps two bites but not a mouthful (well not the size of my mouth)

3oz butter, softened
1½oz sugar
4oz plain flour,
1 lemon, finely grated zest only
1–2 tbsp. demerara sugar

Preheat the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with grease-proof paper.

To make the biscuit place the butter, sugar, and flour into a bowl and mix until a soft dough is formed.

Then knead the lemon zest and demerara sugar into the dough.

Roll into a long sausage shape (about 20cm/8in long) I pop onto a sandwich bag which stops the dough sticking but keeps the worktop clean.
