Ingredients

  • 125g butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups (225g) plain flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • Lemon curd, to decorate
  • Icing sugar, to dust

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter, sugar and egg in a large bowl until just combined. Add the flour and vanilla. Beat until the mixture just comes together. Turn onto a floured surface and gently knead until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 30 mins to chill. 

STEP 2

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface until 3mm thick. Cut egg shapes from the dough and place on the lined trays. Cut a small 1.5cm disc from half the egg shapes. Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 15 mins or until light golden. Cool completely. 

STEP 3

Spread the whole biscuits with a little lemon curd and top with remaining biscuits with holes. Dust biscuits with icing sugar. Spoon a little more lemon curd into the holes to fill to the top.
