A local recipe that was given to me…easy, quick & great for an afternoon treat for the kids or served on the side of some home made ice cream.

8ozs plain flour
4ozs butter
4 ozs castor sugar
1 large egg
grated rind of an unwaxed lemon
Cream the butter and sugar until pale and add the egg, flour & rind. Mix until you have a soft dough. Roll out onto a floured surface until about 1/2 cm thick at most. Cut into rounds place on a baking tray with greasproof paper and bake in a pre heated oven (180 or gas 6) for about 10-15 minutes or until light golden colour. Allow to cool slightly and remove with a palette knife onto a cooling tray to cool fully.
