Lemon Thyme Shortbread

As promised in yesterday's post, here is a biscuit recipe using Lemon Thyme. This buttery shortbread is melt-in-your-mouth delicious and the thyme adds a wonderful surprise flavour. 

You will need:

55 grams caster sugar.
2 tsp lemon thyme leaves, finely chopped.
115 grams unsalted butter, softened.
Finely grated zest of 2 lemons.
170 grams plain flour.
Extra caster sugar to dust.

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C.
Set aside a lightly buttered, non-stick baking sheet. 
Beat together the butter, sugar, lemon zest and thyme until creamy. 

Beat in the flour to form a soft dough. 
Place the dough onto a sheet of cling film or baking paper. Cover with a second sheet and roll out thinly.

Using a cutter, cut out your biscuits. Lift carefully onto the baking sheet and bake for 8-12 minutes until the edges turn a pale golden brown colour. 

Take out of the oven, sprinkle with caster sugar and leave to cool on a wire rack.
