    • 1 ¾ cups white flour
    • ½ cup icing sugar
    • ½ cup custard powder
    • 150 grams butter, room temperature, diced
    • 1 egg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 1 teaspoon milk (to have on hand in case the mix is too dry)
    • Anathoth Farm Lemon Curd


    1. In a large bowl, sift flour, icing sugar & custard powder.
    2. Rub in the butter until the mix resembles bread crumb texture.
    3. In a small bowl, mix egg & vanilla, add this to the flour mixture.
    4. With a butter knife, cut the mixture to form a soft dough.
    5. On a clean bench, turn the mix out and bring it together with your hands to form a dough. If it is a little dry, add 1 teaspoon of milk, but it is a buttery mix, so only add a little milk to help it form.
    6. Wrap & refrigerate for 1 hour to chill.
    7. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
    8. After time in the fridge, unwrap and turn out onto a lightly floured bench.
    9. With a rolling pin, roll out to around 2-3 mm. we want them thin as two biscuits will be stuck together. 
    10. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
    11. Cut into your shapes, I have used hearts, stars are lovely too. You need a base biscuit, then one on top with a piece cut out that you will see the lovely yellow lemon curd through.
    12. Place the biscuits on the trays and bake for 8-10 mins, only until lightly golden.
    13. Cool on the trays for 5 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
    14. Once fully cooled, place a teaspoon of lemon curd in the middle and sandwich the biscuits together.
    15. Store in an airtight container.
