Shortbread with a Citrus twist


Ingredients:
  • Maida 1 1/4 cup
  • Cold butter 1/4 cup
  • Lemon peel 1 Tbsp
  • Sugar 4 Tbsp
Preheat oven to 325 deg F. In a bowl, stir together flour, sugar and the lemon peels. Mix the cold butter with the flour and form a ball and knead until smooth. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten balls until they are 1/4 inch thick. Bake for 15 to 18 mins or just until bottoms start to become brown and centers are set. Transfer to a wire rack and let it cool.
