I use rapeseed oil as it’s meant to be better for you, and I’ve also added a bit of lemon essence and lemon zest to give it a lemony kick. These light, crisp biscuits are perfect for dunking in tea or hot choccy and great to have on hand when someone pops in for tea.
- Heat your oven to 180°C/160°C fan and line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment.
- In a large bowl whisk the eggs together until thickened and then whisk in the sugar a tablespoon at a time.
- Whisk in the oil, lemon essence and lemon zest.
- Fold in the flours using a spatula. You should get a lovely soft dough.
- On a floured surface, knead the dough for a short while to ensure it’s smooth- if you feel you need to add a tiny amount of flour the you can but don’t add too much.
- Refrigerate the dough for 30 mins.
- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll out to around 1cm thickness.
- Sprinkle caster sugar on the top of the dough.
- Using a round cookie cutter (6-7cm) cut out as many rounds as you can and place onto lined baking trays.
- Bake for around 20 mins until a light golden colour then leave to cool on a rack.
