Cooking With Your Toddler - Iced Lemon Cookies

This is a recipe from the Ocado website, a very simple one, in fact so simple that we didn't even use the Kitchen Aid. The butter was very soft though as it had been left out whilst we went shopping so it didn't need much beating.

150g Butter
150g Caster Sugar
1 Egg, beaten
Zest of 1 lemon & juice of half 
350g Plain flour

To decorate
juice of half a lemon
icing sugar
sprinkles - we used Dr Oetker Stars, Polka Dots & Soft Shimmer Pearls *

  • Beat the butter and sugar until creamy
  • Add the egg, lemon juice & zest & beat well
  • Stir in the flour until it starts to come together and then use your hands to bring together. (Add more flour if it's too sticky.)
  • Wrap in clingfilm & refrigerate for half an hour - or in our case 10 minutes in the freezer

  • Roll the dough to about 1/2 - 1cm thick & cut out shapes
  • Bake in a preheated 180 degree (C) oven for 8-10 minutes
  • Transfer to a wire rack & cool 
  • Mix enough icing sugar into the lemon juice to form a thin paste
  • Spread icing over the biscuits & decorate
