Cut lemon cookies - Skurna citronbröd

Skurna citronbröd

Lovely cookies and easy to make as well, with a fresh, sharp taste of lemon zest and juice … lemon, lemon, lemon!!!

48 cookies

7 oz butter or margarine
only just 1 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
zest and juice from 1 lemon
good 1 ¾ cups flour

Stir the fat until smooth, add sugar and stir until fluffy. Add egg yolks, lemon zest, juice and flour and stir until well blended. Roll out to 2 lengths or “sausages”, diameter approx 1 ¼ to 1½ inches, and wrap them up in baking paper or plastic foil and put them in the fridge or freezer, so that they “stiffen”.

Cut the lengths in thin slices and put the cookies on greased baking plates (or use baking paper) with some space between them. Bake in the middle of the oven at 200C/gasmark 6 for 12 to 14 minutes or until slightly brown around the edges. Allow to cool on a rack.
