LEMON VIENNESE WHIRLS
These are the most delicious melt in the mouth biscuits. They're so light that it's difficult to understand how they could possibly be bad for you and surely the lemon curd must count towards your 5 a day........ no?
Gently cream together 250g Butter and 50g Icing Sugar then add 250g Plain Flour along with 50g Cornflour and 1tsp Lemon Essence. The cornflour is what makes them so melty and light. Carefully combine everything till you have a soft thick mixture.
put your mixture into a piping bag with a large star nozzle and pipe rosettes or fingers onto a baking sheet lined with parchment.
Bake in the oven at 180C for 10-15 minutes till they look golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes in the tray before transferring them to a cooling rack. Once cooled spread one biscuit with Buttercream and the other with Lemon Curd. Dust with icing sugar to finish.
