a touch of sweetness
Some biscuit baking the other week - I highly recommend these Polish Lemon Sandwich Tea Cookies, easy to bake & also delicious. They didn't last long, which I always take as a good sign when I bake something new.
A couple of notes:
~ I used the zest from a whole lemon in both the biscuits & the filling (so two in total), rather than splitting the zest from one
~ I don't own a 1-inch cookie scoop (or any cookie scoop), so I just used a tablespoon - which must be bigger, since I only got 18 sandwich cookies (36 biscuits before filling)
~ also, the filling/icing is really nice, but the recipe does make lots - we ended up baking a butter cake later in the week to use it up (poor us, lol). If you get more biscuits/are more generous with the filling, you might not have this problem though.
