These delicious biscuits are perfect for tea and a catch up with your friends. The tangy lemon and the creamy chocolate flavours are great together!

Ingredients

  • 125g (4½oz) butter, softened
  • 125g (4½oz) caster sugar
  • 1 tsp pure lemon oil
  • 1 egg
  • 450g (1lb) plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 300g (10½oz) white chocolate

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C/325°F/Gas mark 3. Line one or two baking sheets with baking

  • parchment.

  • Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Add the lemon oil and beat for a further 30 seconds. Beat in the egg until just combined. In a separate bowl combine the flour and baking powder. Mix into the butter mixture, adding enough of the milk to make a dough. Chill if the weather is warm.

  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, about 4mm (¼in) thick. Using a 6-cm (2½ in) round cutter, cut the dough into rounds then transfer on to the prepared trays.

  • Bake for 15–18 minutes, or until lightly golden. Allow to cool slightly then transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely. When cool, melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler. Half dip the biscuits into the chocolate then leave to set on baking parchment in a cool place.
