Lemon Cream Biscuits and Relay For Life

So I made these a while ago and just haven't gotten around to posting them. They were super yummy if you like lemony things. But more importantly I wanted to let people who read this know that I am participating in Relay For Life this year and am currently fundraising! Here is a link to my fundraising page if any one wanted to donate. It is a really good cause and the relay itself should be a whole lot of fun. I will probably make some tasty treats to keep us going through the night! Any contributions would be greatly appreciated but if you can't donate, even a tweet or post on your twitter or Facebook to this page and link would be super appreciated :) Thanks!

Lemon Cream Biscuits

Recipe adapted from

What you will need

250g butter, room temp
1/3 cup icing sugar, sifted
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 3/4 cups plain flour
50g cornflour

60g butter, room temp
2/3 cup icing sugar, sifter
1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp lemon juice
extra icing sugar, sifted

What you will need to do

Preheat oven to 160*C and line a baking tray with baking paper. Beat the butter, icing sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy. Sift the flour and cornflour into the butter mix and beat until just combined. Roll spoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking tray leaving a few centimetres between each. Flatten slightly with a fork then bake for 15 minutes or until cooked (they should only slightly brown on the bottom). Let cool on trays then transfer to a wire rack.

To make the filling, cream the butter, icing sugar and lemon juice until smooth and creamy. Pipe or spread filling on half of the biscuits then sandwich together with remaining biscuits.

To make the lemon glaze, mix a little icing sugar into the lemon juice until a smooth but runny consistency is reached. Brush glaze over the tops of the biscuits with a pastry brush. Place in fridge to set.
